Bitten By the Bug 2 Wheelbarrow Challenge/I'm a Winner!

So my husband made a craft room for me in our unfinished basement. You can check it out here.  There was a lot of left over scrap wood.  My husband was getting ready to throw it all away until I stopped him and said "You can't throw away all that wood, think about all the decorations I could make with this wood!" ha!  He gave into my idea, and so I was able to keep the scrap wood, save the environment, and make this cool sign:

I will be entering this sign into a challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2.  
The challenge was to use a wheelbarrow in your project. Check it out here.
By the way................................................................

Creations with Christina had a giveaway and I won! It was the cricut cartridge Straight from the Nest. Thanks so much Christina!  You rock!  She also sent the most beautiful card with the cartridge....so basically I won two prizes!  You can check out her website here.  If you notice the word "Fall" on my sign....that's from the cartridge Christina gave me! Thanks again!

  4. Oh WOW! How gorgeous and creative! Love your fabulous sign. I'm gonna have to check out my Straight From the Nest cart. LOVE that "Fall" cut! Congrats on your win! xxD

  5. this is such a pretty sign, I love the mix of fonts you used! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2!

  6. I love your sign!! What a great idea--off to look for some wood, LOL! Thanks for joining in the challenge at BBTB2!

  7. WOW Jill,
    That sign is soooo cute. I love everything about it. The different fonts, the colors, and the "fall" cutout is the best.
    Hugs, Christina

  8. This is really cool!! I love the design. What an awesome project. Thanks for joining us at BBTB2!

  9. What a GREAT project, I love it! I had to laugh when you said you wouldn't throw away any of the wood. I'm a re-cycler and I did that when we built our house, I kept so many "pieces" of parts of the house that I just couldn't throw away and I've made quite a few home items and gifts with things the hubs would have thrown away! Now he asks first before he throws almost anything away and has even brought me things he thinks I might be able to re-use, lol! This is a great gift idea, inexpensive to make, but worth a million because you made it! So glad you joined us at BBTB2 for the challenge!
    ((Hugs)) Theresa
