My parents love antiques and well they also love...having a good time and drinking.  So for the holidays I wanted to make them something that read "It's 5:00 o'clock somewhere!"  in an antique-ish style.  How?  I have no clue? 
My ideas have been minimal, but are:
Embroidering the words and framing it--I'm not so good at embroidering letters though
Stenciling the words and framing it
or something else entirely!

Any ideas?

I like to do all sorts of crafts so any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Thanks

I think it would look really nice painted/stencilled on a piece of wood (plaque-style) and then you can distress and "antique" it. If you did decide to do it in embroidery, I think it would be a nice "old" touch to do it in a sampler style.

I like the idea of stenciling it onto wood and then distressing it.  However, I'm going to have to mail it so that could possibly end up being costly and I'm trying to avoid that entirely.  Perhaps using cross stitches may help me with embroidering letters.  What do ya think?
