Moxie Fab World "Taintor-tude" Challenge

Here are my entries for the Moxie Fab World "Taintor-tude" Challenge. I was going to do more than one post, but I am so sleepy I just want to get these loaded. I did 8 cards.

Now, it was certainly fun working on these cards, but I was absolutely out of my element, here. Not comfortable working with vintage, but I do like the look when others do it...

OK, well, I hope you enjoy....

(1) Bon voyage

She's doin' the "Miss America wave" cause she doesn't want her hand to be too tired to hold that drink!...

(2) Carwash (or "I'm on the outside lookin' in...)

Somehow Dad figures out how to get the whole family involved in washing the car, but Mom?, well...

(3) The 20% (or...She came up short...)

Looks like this couple stole away to the only place in town that doesn't allow necking. Now I guess if you have to explain it, it doesn't count, but I will anyway. I saw a movie where they explained that if you are with your significant other and you have "80%" of your needs being met, you are doing good. However, there are some people that leave the relationship for the person that can satisfy the other "20%" that their mate just couldn't do. But in the end, that's what you end up with, the 20% instead of the 80%. Think about it....(hummmmmmm...)

(4) On Her Pedestal

She's posing like Barbie, and if he thinks for one moment that her hands on that lawnmower mean shes gonna start pushin' it, he better think again!...

(5) Jok-her-face

I'm sorry, but her face sooo reminds me of the Joker from the Batman movies. ...
All I could think of was Joan Rivers and Botox!

(6) Fishing is a "trip" with Friends and Family

OK, I confess. He was actually holding up a shoe! But I replaced it with this wrench. It's pretty much the same difference, isn't it?

(7) The "Turkey"

I discussed this one with my sister. I think this one tells my age because when I asked my son about it, he had no idea that a man would EVER be called a "turkey". It did not comprehend for his 15 year old brain. But when I was coming up, not only were they called "turkeys", but they were even called "jive turkeys"...go figure...

(8) The Blind Date

Well, I saved my favorite for last. This is a classic case of "Men are from mars, and Women are from Venus..." There are so many times that we send wrong signals or misinterpret conversation and we don't even realize it. I remember a man asked me out once (many moons ago) and I let him know I wasn't interested. He was really shocked and said he thought I liked him. When I asked him how or why he came to that conclusion- he said simply because I smiled at him, and talked to him. (HUHHHH!?!) After that it was strictly hello and goodbye.....This photo just reminded me of those occasions.

  8. Hi Rachel,

    Look at all these comments! You go gal!

    I had to ask Victor. It means, "instead of try to get something that couldn't get, why not value what you have."

    Isn't it wired?

  9. Rachel, these are soooooo funny! You should have won something... at least a blog trophy or something. If I had a blog trophy "gut busting humor" I'd award it to you
