Congratulations to each and every one of you.  Please email (with Challenge #3 winner or Top Three in the title) to claim your blinkies and give Heather your choice of digis from her store.  And please could the GDT winner email Heather as well.  Thank you.

Now onto this fortnight's challenge where the theme is Layer It Up, so we really want to see lots of lovely layers on your projects.  You can use any digi or stamped image you like (excluding  Sherri Baldy images) as long as it is hand coloured so your options are endless.  However, if you use a Lacy Sunshine   digi (the only official and legal home of Heather Valentin's images), you will be entered into the Random.Or draw for the main prize twice for each entry!!!!  Heather has provided a stunning (brand new) free digi for you (below) to use if you would like to enter the challenge.   Just email Heather on and put Free Challenge Digi in the title if you would like to use the digi.

The Top Three will each receive their choice of two digis (excluding pre coloured or retiring) from Lacy Sunshine and a blinky.

Don't forget to put GDT or GCT after your name if you would like to be in with a chance of joining the Sunshine Girls as a Guest Creative Team member for the next challenge. And please check the rules to make sure you follow them properly before entering.

And to give you a little bit of inspiration our fabulous Sunshine Girls have created some stunning projects which will hopefully inspire you.  For this one, each of us has used a fabulous digi from Heather Valentin's stunning new range - Melancholy Moppets!  These can be found on their own page at Lacy Sunshine and Heather will be adding more and more to the range as they are going to be HUGE!  We have all had so much fun playing with these digis and I think it shows as every one of the team has created such beautiful projects.  Heather has added a little video featuring many more cards created by the Sunshine Girls using the Melancholy Moppets and it can be viewed on the Lacy Sunshine Blog here.

Have fun everyone, and good luck!

Challenge #3 - Double Trouble!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok?

Before getting on to Challenge #3 I will begin my announcing the Winner and Top Three for Challenge #2 - Favourite Colour Combo.  Random.Org is down today, so I have used another generator to pick the winner, and the Top Three have been picked by myself this week...and it was a seriously difficult job.  Wow!  There are so many fabulously talented people out there.  You do NOT make this job easy! Lol.

The figure I entered into the number generator this week was 137 to ensure that each of the entries who used a Heather Valentin digi had two entries each.

Ok...the Winner is:

So that's number 66 which is Katherine K!!!!  And here's Katherine K's beautiful card.
And the Top Three (in no particular order) are:
Kim O'Connell (29)
Love is all you Need (44)
Donna BMC (78)

And the GDT spot goes to TaniaJ

Congratulations to all of you...all the cards are stunning!
Please could the Winner, Top Three and GDT all contact for your prizes and blinkies. 

And now onto Challenge #3 and the theme for this fortnight is Double Trouble!  In this challenge we want to see 2 people or 2 animals or one of each having an adventure, getting up to mischief or generally having fun.  It can be girly or more masculine.  Our cards are more masculine this week to coincide with the fabulous new 'Jamie & Maddie releases which you can find here.  To give you a little inspiration the Lacy Sunshine Creative Team have done us proud yet again with more absolutely stunning projects.

And here's the freebie digi for this challenge...I'm sure you'll love it!  It's a nice, easy one to colour and is so cute.  The triceratops is called Terry.  If you would like to use this digi for the challenge please email and put Free Challenge Digi in the title.

Please see the Challenge Rules and Information page before entering so that you can ensure you tick all the boxes to qualify for the $30 voucher to spend at the Lacy Sunshine  store.  It would be a shame to lose out on the chance of winning all those digis through not reading and adhering to the rules, wouldn't it?  The Top Three each win their choice of two of Heather Valentin's stunning digis (not including the retiring or precoloured digis), and there are blinkies for the Winner and Top Three.

Please note that due to recent issues (see Lacy Sunshine Blog) Sherri Baldy images are not permitted in the challenge and any entry using them will be disqualified.

And don't forget, if you would like the chance for a go as Guest Creative Team member, remember to put either DCT or GDT after your name when you enter.

Good luck and have fun everyone.
