Challenge #6 - Spring Fever!

Hi Folks!

Wow, what an incredible amount of fabulous entries there were for Challenge #5 (Anything Goes)!  As there were so many entries (all stunners!) I took the job of 'judging' on myself as I knew it would take so long...and it did!  I've spent hours and hours going through them all and it really was very difficult whittling it down to a Top Three.  I'm only glad that I don't have to pick an actual winner!

Without further ado, here is the Winner, Top Three and Guest Design Team Member from Challenge #5:

Winner (as drawn by
 Which is:

Top Three (in no particular order)
Nat (46)
 ALBC Maddie
Doreen (53)

Tracey M (112)

Bettina (191)

Huge congratulations to all of you...all absolutely stunning projects.  Please could you all contact Heather at putting either Winner, Top Three or GDT from Challenge #5 in the title, letting her know your choice of digis.

********** onto Challenge #6 which is Spring Fever.  We want to see lots of gorgeous projects using either a spring image or using spring colours...the choice is yours.

As always, the winner will receive $30 worth of digis from the Lacy Sunshine store and a blinky.
Top Three will receive two digis of their choice (excluding retiring or pre coloured) and a blinky.
GDT will recieve a digi of Heather's choice and a blinky.

Entries using a Lacy Sunshine digi will be entered into the winning draw twice for each entry.  If you would like to use a Lacy Sunshine digi but don't yet have one, contact Heather at putting Free Challenge Digi in the title and she will very kindly send you this little cutie!  This one's called Flowerbed Fred and he's just adorable.

Please read and follow all the rules before entering.  Remember, Sherri Baldy images are NOT permitted in this challenge and will be removed.


The Sunshine Girls have had a lot of fun creating their cards for this challenge.  Some of us have used Heather's adorable Flower Pot Pretties and others have used Lacy Sunshine's brand spanking new characters - The Gnomes!  These will be in the shop today and not all are shown in the cards below.  I'm really excited about these guys as they were my idea and Heather thought I was totally nuts when I suggested them, lol.  She has even created a 'Lexie' gnome, lol.  Think she's coming around to seeing their charm and humour, though, and I hope you do too.  They're going to make creating those so difficult mens' cards much more fun for us crafters.  I love them all and they're my favourites now.  Really hoping you think they're a lot of fun as well.  I've not used one myself for this challenge, but there will be some Gnome cards appearing on my own blog over the next few days...

Don't forget to add GDT after your name if you'd like to be put in for the Guest Design Team Member spot for the next challenge.

Good luck everyone and happy crafting!
