Moxie Fab World Taintor Challenge

Cathy at the Moxie Fab World had issued a Monday Moxie Fab Challenge to create a card in the style of Anne Taintor. The challenge was to create a card with a sassy saying to go with the vintage picture. I hunted down some advertising pictures from post cards and used them to create three cards. I apologize up front for some of the humor. It took me much longer to come up with something for the sayings than to create the cards.

The first card was from a postcard and has part of the sentiment on the front:

and the rest on the inside: (I know I don't look this good when I go grocery shopping!)
The next one I tried for a long time to come up with a different expression but when my father laughed at what I had put, I figured it wasn't too bad. Although he did say it depended on who I was sending it to.

I have a few friends who go fishing with us and I think will appreciate this, as we have all had a few fishing stories...
The last one took the longest to come up with a saying and we all had different ideas and I ended up with this:


Well this was definitely a challenge and something very different for me...

Have a lovely day!
