Anne Taintor Inspiration

If you like those vintage women cards with snarky sayings, then you like Anne Taintor...she was probably the first to start them. I think they're funny and I got caught up in making them for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop this summer.

Here's another. I promise it's the last one for this hop (I have two up at a2z Scrapbooking and one more from Friday).

Here's a close-up for the saying, I just googled coffee quotes and picked a few of my faves for these cards, typed them, printed them and then trimmed them out. I thought they looked like they were friendly, but that lady on the right is trying to tell her co-worker to calm the heck down until she's had her morning brew. This image is from the a2z Scrapbooking store and called Hero Arts Make Your Own Sewing Fashion.

I colored them with Prismacolor pencils in the summery red, white and blue colors, and added some rose ribbon trim to the corner. It's Tim Holtz ribbon.
