Sonic Drink Sign - Copy Cat

Some time back, I saw the cutest sign on Pinterest that described our house perfectly!  It was created by Shannon at Sweet Blessings .






I pinned it to my Cricut Crafts Board fully intending to make it using the Cricut. But then, we spent last week in the hospital (the hubby had surgery) and I was playing around on PicMonkey (big surprise - right?) and came up with my own version.


I'm a Copy Cat! But I hope Shannon agrees with me that "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".  Check out Shannon's blog because she has the sign in all different colors and kinds of drinks along with lots of other great printables that she has designed.


Here is my version - the polka dot background is very subtle and doesn't show up that well in the pictures -

(check out the cute Owl that my Mother-In-Law made me for Christmas 
and the little pink pig came from the Dollar Spot at Target)

I found a package of 2 frames in this great turquoise color at Target sometime last year on the clearance shelf for $1.48 and knew they would be perfect for this.  The bunting across the top is just 2 different strands of embroidery floss that I twisted together with little pieces of polka dot ribbon hot glued on to them.

Here's my version for you to download and print -

 All my friends and family know that I have a serious Sonic Diet Cherry Coke addiction and will agree that this sign fits me perfectly!

  4. That sign is so cute and full of possibilities! You could substitute Sonic for Starbucks, Chardonnay, Chocolate! The choices are endless! For me, it would be appropriate to use "cat hair" since I have so many of those critters! Thanks for sharing and thanks for your sweet comment about my chair. You'll be the first on the list when I gift it away!

    1. Thanks for dropping by Jaye. Love the idea about the cat hair! I'm going to have to make one for Leigh with that saying on it. She spends endless amounts of time with a lint roller because of her kitty! We just picked up 3 chairs off the curb and I think I'm going to paint one of them just like yours!

  8. So cute! I've been to Sonic once and I had a drink there, don't remember which one but I do remember it was so good.
    I haven't tried using PicMonkey for signs before, it's a great idea. Thanks for sharing on my Our Favorite Things Link Party.
