Challenge #2 - Favourite Colour Combo.

Please note:

Due to recent issues (see Lacy Sunshine Blog for information) Sherry Baldy images are not permitted to enter this challenge.

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the second Lacy Sunshine Challenge.

Firstly, I want to thank everyone for all the fabulous entries to our first challenge.  It was lovely to see so many entries and every project was absolutely beautiful.  I will announce the Winner and Top Three in a minute, but firstly I want to tell you that Heather's feeling really generous and wants to share some Lacy Sunshine love so has decided to keep the prize as a $30 voucher (or occasionally it's equivalent) to spend in the Lacy Sunshine store.  Not only that, but Heather has decided that the Top Three should get a little prize as well, so they will win their choice of two digis (not including precoloured or retiring) from the Lacy Sunshine store!

Secondly, I'd like to welcome Meredith and Anjie to the Sunshine Girls (Creative Team).  They're both fab crafters and I'm sure they'll help to inspire you with their beautiful projects.  We're really pleased (and lucky) to have them on board.

Thirdly, if you'd like a spot as a Guest Creative Team member in Challenge #3, please put your name in the 'Title' line of linky followed by GCT or GDT.

Ok, onto the Winner (drawn by Random.Org) and Top Three for Challenge #1 - Anything Goes as selected by Heather:

       The Winner is:
no 47

Top Three (in no particular order) are:

 No 48
No 58

Congratulations to all of you...they're stunning projects.
  Please could you email Heather at to claim your blinkies and prizes. If the winner could put 'Challenge #1 Winner' in the title and the Top Three could put 'Challenge # 1 Top Three' in the title, that would be great, thanks.  

And now onto Challenge #2 with the theme of Favourite Colour Combo.  Take a look below at The Sunshine Girls' fabulous creations for inspiration...I'm sure you'll agree that their cards are real stunners! Links to the Sunshine Girls Creative Team are in the sidebar so pay them a visit for more inspiration...after making a cuppa first, of course!

Don't forget that if you use a Heather Valentin digi you will go into the random draw for the $30 voucher prize twice!  And, as usual, Heather's offering a free digi (below) for you to use in the challenge if you don't yet have any of her digis.  If you would prefer to buy your own, there are plenty to choose from (including retiring digis for $) in the Lacy Sunshine  store so take a look.

If you would like to use the free digi for the challenge please contact Heather at with 'Free Challenge Digi' in the title.

Please could all entrants make sure they read the rules on the rules and information page and make sure they follow the rules.  A number of entrants didn't link back to the challenge and even more failed to register as a follower of the challenge blog.  It's a shame to lose out by missing a rule, so please check that you're covered.

Happy crafting everyone!
Good luck.

Challenge One - Anything Goes!

Please can everyone remember to join as a follower of this blog otherwise your entries won't qualify for a prize/place?  
Many thanks.

Hi Folks!

And a very big welcome to our brand new Lacy Sunshine Challenge.

We're so excited to finally be getting our fortnightly challenge off the ground and can't wait to see all your gorgeous projects.  It doesn't have to be a card as long as it follows the theme.

Please can you have a read of the rules which are here to make sure you know all about the challenge before you enter.  

We welcome any entries using any digi image or stamped image, but using a Heather Valentin Lacy Sunshine image will gain you two entries into the draw giving you more chances of winning.

Heather has a free digi up for grabs if you have none of hers to use and would like to do so.  You just need to email Heather at and put 'free challenge digi' in the title and she'll get it to you as soon as she can.  For this challenge she has chosen the Pickles - Sharing the Love digi which can be seen below.

As this is our very first challenge, this week's prize has been doubled and the winner (drawn by Random) will receive a voucher for $30 to spend at  Lacy Sunshine

There will also be a Winners blinkie and a Top Three blinkie...the top three being selected by a member of the Creative Team. in the title, the theme for our first challenge is the ever popular Anything Goes, so meet our fabulous Sunshine Girls and check out their inspirational projects below and happy crafting!
Good luck everybody!












Good luck everyone!

As soon as we set up the new Linky for Challenge #2 this one vanished.  We've contacted the Linky peeps to find out how to get it back so hope it will reappear soon.
