painted Christmas signs

I love this small handmade painted sign I purchased at a gift shop a few years ago--

I've considered buying more every time I'm at a craft show, but I decide not to since I could make one myself.  I finally bought a 1" x 2", had my husband cut it in small pieces and made this--

I painted it with Ceramcoat acrylic paint (barn red and lime green) and used foam stamps to stamp the sentiment.  I wasn't that happy with the paint job on the words until I sanded them a little.  It distressed it just enough to make it look good.  (Not that you can tell from the horrible picture.)  Now to make about 10 more before Christmas!
