Sunday Challenge Marathon ;)

It was a really horrible day out today so I decided to catch up on some challenges. I went for a big project that I'd be meaning to get around to. The instructions for this set (and there is more to it!!) can be purchased HERE.

So, it's 4 items and 4 challenges :)

  1. Stamping for the weekend - Rock n' Roll 70's
  2. Friday Sketchers - Sketch
  3. Sketch Saturday - Sketch
  4. Stamp Something - Sketch Something Challenge
I am entering the whole set into SFTW and I went for "Tangled up in Blue" but it could take in all 3 song titles, lol.

Tangled up in Blue – Bob Dylan (set is blue)
Three Times a Lady – The Commodores (my 3 Tildas)
Seasons in the Sun – Terry Jacks (Summer Tilda card)

This was really a fantastic project and I'll definitely be going back to Inking Idaho to get some more.
The tote bag has 3 pockets on the front and one large pocket on the back. In each of the front pockets there is a little tag/bookmark, for which I used co-ordinating papers to decorate & added a little button the top of each one.

I also added some bling on the back pocket!!!

The cards in the tote:

Papers: K & Company - Blue Awning
Images: Magnolias - Lazy Days of Summer kit and Shabby Chic Summer 2008
Ribbon: American Crafts
Pewter Pearls - PM
Sentiments - Studio G, SeeD's & Magnolia
Distress inks

Wow Sandie, you've really outdone yourself this week, love all the Tilda cards, your papers and the sketches you followed, and the tote bag to hold the cards is fabulous. You've done a fabulous job coloring the images and everything matches up so well.....definitely a marathon project, but worth it in the end, as it makes a lovely gift for someone.
