The Moxie Fab Taintor-tude Challenge




I know you have all seen these witty little things.... compacts, magnets, cosmetic bags...  and they are so sassy and so hilarious!  These vintage photos mixed with witty sentiments are the brainchild of Anne Taintor, and her style is the inspiration for the Moxie Fab challenge this week!

I kept my card EXTREMELY simple, because once I found this photo online, I thought it was perfect.  I hope you all "get" my punchline, because when I saw this picture, it instantly took me back to the year after I got married, when my husband and I were in a combined total of 11 weddings.  Oh, how I wish I were joking!  I have a very impressive (okay, impressive might not be the word everyone would choose to describe them) collection of bridesmaids dresses (thus, the revenge thing I mention on my card), and they can be yours if the price is right--LOL!  I'm certain all of my bridesmaids feel the same way about the dresses I picked for them, though at the time I thought they were gorgeous and that they could definitely use them again-- ha! (We've all heard that line before;)

The photo I chose was already colored, so I added only the sentiment and the cardstock.  So simple.



Ingredients: Free Photo {http://oldphotoalbum.blogspot.com}; Cardstock: Mark's Finest Papers {Speedy the Cat Black, Snow Storm Smooth}, SU! {Barely Banana}; Other: Photo Paper, Computer/Printer.
