Christmas "Comfort and Joy" sign made from recycled Door Parts

Good Morning my Beauties!
I am slowly but surely starting to get to work on some of my Christmas Crafts.
I know I am already BEHIND Bloggy wise but Personally, I am way ahead of the game..:)

I keep lots of SCRAP CRAP in my shed and this was one of those pieces.
I had found a door in a dumpster last winter and I had been saving it, but
I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it.
My hubby, being the patient man that he is waited a year for me to decide and then
to compromise; he cut it into pieces and let me keep certain parts and pieces.
2 of the pieces were part of the bottom panel. They have these rectangular inserts
in those old wood doors. When he cut it they fell out.
Well you know me...."SAVE IT" it went in my SCRAP CRAP pile up in my shed.

I used my silhouette..(which I am learning to LOVE, but it takes time and patience..)
to cut out the words COMFORT and JOY.

I used my CeCe Caldwells Traverse City Cherry and stenciled it on the panel.
I then edged around the whole piece with the red.
When it was dry I distressed it and waxed it.

I am LOVIN it! I plan on making lots more Christmas signs for my booth.
I just gotta find the time..LOL!

I hope you enjoyed this quick little tutorial.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
