Got Taintor-tude?

Well, friends, I don't know when I've had such a good laugh when looking at the projects for a Moxie Fab World challenge as I did in our Taintor-tude Challenge. (It probably would be a b-a-d thing if I had a good laugh normally. I know, right?) And it wasn't just me chortling, chuckling, and guffawing all night long last night, either. My husband, Mark, and my daughter, Beccah were LOL-ing as well. Thanks for tuckling my finny bone in such grand style!

I know I say this every time, but it was absolutely a-g-o-n-i-z-i-n-g making these decisions because there were so many sassily super options from which to choose. Especially since so many of you entered multiple times! My goodness, but this was a ton of fun!

And while I loved Taintor-tudinal cards by Virginia B, Kazan, Jen Shears, Kristin H, and Karen Baker, the "I'm Moxie Fab" badges go to these sassy lassies:

Oops! Card by Dani Holland

Moxie Fab Alert: This girl is so pampered and powdered that it's hard to imagine her setting one pointy little toe in a grocery store--so it's not too big of a jump to understand that she bought shoes in favor of groceries--again. I love the way Dani added additional, subtle girly touches to this spoiled little woman, for they help us love her all the more.

Best Efforts Card by Rae Barthel

Moxie Fab Alert: I not only love this pre-made sassy focal point, but I also love the fun way Rae has dressed it up as a birthday card. Good job, Rae!

Oh My Card by Laura O'Donnell

Moxie Fab Alert: Many of you had some fun applying your Taintor-tude sentiments to our beloved hobby of paper crafting, but Laura's 5 had me literally belly-laughing. Be sure and click on over to her blog to see the rest of her industry-specific snarks and a supah fun nod to this blog!

Reject and Substitute Card by Kristin Tierney

Moxie Fab Alert: Of all Kristin's moxie fab entries, this one is definitely the stand-out. Love, love, love the rhinestones that underline this saucy girl that gives us all permission to revel in our own sense of reality--whatever that may be.

Less Like a Drunk Card by Angie Tieman

Moxie Fab Alert: I laughed my you-know-what off when I saw this hilarious card. The addition of the pearls that divide both the plane and the sentiment at just the right moment is its "crown"-ing glory.

Congrats to all today's winners, and thanks to everyone who gave this fun challenge a whirl! If you haven't had a chance to click through all the offerings, I highly recommend it--there are some hilarious entries you won't want to miss!

Winners, please send me your addresses in an email tohttp://www.blogger.com/cedvalson@papercraftsmag.com with "Taintor-tude Challenge Winner" in the subject line and I'll get your badges and prizes to you pronto!

As fun as this one was, there's even more fun to be had when I announce the next Moxie Fab World challenge tomorrow, straight from one of your favorite columns in Paper Crafts magazine, so be sure and tune in for more s-t-r-e-t-c-h-y fun!

Keep it sassy, friends,

~Cath
