Moxie Fab World Taintor-tude Challenge

Ok, so I hadn't planned on making a card for this one until yesterday when I happened to come across an old needle book in my sewing stash that was given to me by my mother-in-law when she found it at her mom's house. I have a reputation for liking old stuff. Anyway, I think this book is really cool  and the "Happy Home" brand with the women sitting around with their sewing notions in hand makes me chuckle. As soon as I saw it I knew that was my sign to get busy on this Moxie Fab Challenge...



This card is dedicated to Margaret Greiman, the original owner of this little sewing needle book (which is still full of mint condition needles... either she didn't use them much;) or those rust proof needles really do hold up over generations). Either way, I'm glad that they are now a part of my happy home.  Thanks Cath for providing this great challenge which brought them out of storage so I could share them with all of my Moxie Fab friends:)

I found the sentiment here and used two great papers from  Cosmo Cricket's new Material Girl Mini Deck... the colors are a perfect match to the palette of the book.

Thanks for visiting! I can't wait to hop around to see everyone else's sassy Taintor-tude cards!!!
