Crafty Purple Frog Challenge DT Card & some exciting news!!!

Good morning everyone hope you are all fine & dandy today. Sorry I'm late this morning I've got my youngest lad Jake off school today with what looks like Tonsilitus....he did go school this morn but then had to bring him back, so I'm gonna try make this post a quickie cus I'm running late.
First tho I have to tell you the first of my exciting news Iam a SWEET PEA STAMPER wooooo hooooo yes can you believe it they chose me as one of their new dt to join their fabulous team I cant believe it. I really am truly honoured & to be honest I even told my hubby that I wouldn't get picked as the talent was amazing from other applicants. I thank them from the bottom of my heart I really am honoured....its a good job you didnt see my dance I did mind lol. The rest of my news well.................nah you will have to wait for
Anyway onto my post which of course is for Crafty Purple Frog 
Thank you to everyone who joined our last you really do keep knocking our socks off with your fabulous creations......awesome they all were!!
This week with the sight of spring in the air (ssshhh pretend there is) we would like to see 'Green'
Now you can go a little bit green, 2 tone or you could even go HULK & go all green...the choice is yours peeps as long as we see green then come & join us.
Here is my green creation......

This is 'Ivy Mermaid' pyramage which of course you can get here.

Isn't she so beautiful. Now cus a few of us girlies went for the same one I went for pyramage for a change I do normally go for decoupage but if time is a problem them these pyramages are fabulous they really are.

Everything is from my stash except the green bakers twine which is from Crafty Emma's Store

The papers are K&Co which was one of my first pads lol. Since having more storage in my craft room I have different brands in different drawers.......yes I have a huge amount of paper its a weakness & I'm currently seeking advice from.....Craft Shops he he hee.

Love this card - what a great way to use a pyramage, its not something I would think of using, but this looks gorgeous.

Congrats on being picked for the Dt, I had no doubt that you were going to be picked. If they lost their way and didn't pick you they would have had me to deal with. Lol. Love this latest card hunni it lovely as are all the rest of your projects.


CraftyC said...

Oh well done on making the DT Vicky, so well deserved. bet your pleased as punch. Hugs for Jake and hop your weekend isn't too stressful!

Grenouille Greetings said...

Had I been on the Sweet Pea decision making team,Vicky, I would have chosen you too! There could be no doubt that you are a mahusive Sweet Pea fan but of course that is not all - you always colour these lovely images superbly and always display them to their best advantage amidst wonderful papers and embellishments and your design layouts are always first class. If I'm honest, I'm not so much a fan of the pre-printed images nor of pyramage but this card is beautiful! I could change my mind! Hugs, Lesley said...

Hi Vicky

Congrats on joining us! Looking forward to working with you hun. Love this card it's a stunner.
