DICC Sponsored by Bombshell and New Dilly Beans!

Hello there! I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for the newest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and the second, since it's Friday is for the latest Dilly Beans challenge. Let's start with DICC Here's the itinerary:
1. Use Indian Corn colors of Rust, Gold, Deep Red, and Tan
2. Thank You or Thankful theme
3. Dry or Heat Embossing
4. 3 Layers
5. Metal
6. Die Cuts
7. Charms
8. Photo Corners
9. Ribbons 
10. Lace

We are sponsored by the fabulous Bombshell Stamps this time around, and most of the team is using the Indian Princess set. This set also happens to be the Muse Monday set of the month, so you can snag it on sale! I used #'s 1, 2, 3, and 9.

I embossed the Large Feather with clear ink directly on the tag, then I inked over it using a few different chalk inks. The Dreamcatcher was stamped separately and cut out. I colored it with pencils and more of the chalk ink. The "Thank You" is from Bombshell's Banner Sayings set, and I embossed that and inked it as well.

Sorry for the glare on this pic. Now...on to Dilly Beans! This week's challenge is Anything But a Card. 

This is a pretty simplistic layout for me...I usually do more "stuff" to my pages. But, I think it's cute. We had visited my bestie Kelli over the Summer. And the woman is so damn thoughtful....she had a whole drawer of crafts for my kids to do! Well, they were of course thrilled, and immediately started to make things. These photos were taken the morning after we arrived. As soon as they woke up in the morning, they started making Christmas Crafts. 

I colored this sweet snowman couple with my alcohol markers. 

I would love for you to join me and my fellow DT'ers on both blogs! Check out the DICC Blog, the Dilly Beans Blog, AND the Bombshell Blog for lots more fantastic projects. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
