I love all these!  You guys are all so creative.

I’ve made a bunch of sweet barnwood signs.  Here’s the inspiration:

 

AND HERE’S MINE!  (Some of them, at least.)  We’re going to mount them on stakes.

@MLDoddie:  Thanks! Smile I made a little tutorial in the DIY section you can see at http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-scripty-barnwood-signs#axzz2TYmJdxOI

The font is called “bombshell” – I found an alphabet online and just tried to copy it freehand.  Once I got the hang of it, it wasn’t too hard even though I’m really not very artistic.
