Challenge #13 - Anything Goes - Must Use Hand Coloured Image.

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all ok and surviving the hot/cold weather, depending on where you are?

Before moving on with the new challenge we'll announce the Winner, Top Three and GDT from
Challenge #12.

To qualify for the winning prize of a $30 gift certificate for Lacy Sunshine Digis   you MUST use a Lacy Sunshine image.  (This gift certificate  excludes  Memory Box Dies and retiring digis). There are squillions of stunning digis available in the Lacy Sunshine Store so grab a cuppa and go and have a little browse.

The winner is drawn by Random.Org.  As non Lacy Sunshine entries are excluded I have renumbered the Lacy Sunshine entries in the order they were entered and then did the Random draw.

The winner of Challenge #12 is:

Margaret A (Granmargaret) (original number 79)
with this lovely card

 Congratulations Margaret!  A beautiful card and a well deserved win.  Please can you contact Heather at with your choice of digis putting 'Challenge #12 Winner' in the title.

The fabby (no...I did NOT say flabby!) Tracey has taken her turn at picking the Top Three and GDT this week and here are her choices:
Top Three (in order of entry)
Mian (3)

Sara S (25)
Bettina (102)
GDT is:
Angelique (96)

Congrats Girls!  They're all so beautiful and I think Tracey chose brilliantly.  Please could the Top Three email Heather with your choices of 2 digis each (excluding retiring and precoloured) and could Angelique also contact Heather for your GDT digi...all putting a relevant title in your email?  Thanks girls...have fun playing with your new digis!


Just want to make a little comment at this point.  Nat, one of our lovely Sunshine Girls, has been taken poorly so will be having a break.  I just wanted to let Nat know that we're all thinking of her and wishing her a speedy and full recovery so that she can come back and show us all more of her beautiful projects.  Get well soon Nat.xx

And now on to Challenge #13, which is, as always, Anything Goes.  Please remember that your entry MUST include a stamped or digital image which you have coloured by hand.  Also, only Lacy Sunshine projects will be eligible for the main prize, though other entries still qualify for the Top Three (2 digis) and GDT spot (if you have put GDT after your name when entering).

There's a slight change this week...due to the huge amount of people requesting the free digi and not using it in the challenge, which is what it was there for, Heather is now offering a new digi each challenge which will be discounted to $2 for the duration of the challenge.  But if you purchase the discounted challenge digi and use it in the challenge the next discounted challenge digi will be FREE on request, as will the follow on digi if you use that in the challenge and so on.  There are also a lot of retiring digis for $1 each over at the Lacy Sunshine Store or, of course, you can use a Lacy Sunshine one from your own collection.

Here is the discounted digi for this challenge which is available from the Lacy Sunshine Store for $2.  Please do not email Heather to request this digi but if you wish to purchase it you can make your purchase in the same way as you usually would.  Thank you.
Don't forget that if you wish to have the chance of being selected as GDT for the next challenge you must put GDT after your name when entering.

And now onto the Sunshine Girls' inspirational projects.  This week Team Heather are showcasing a new range of Gnomes of  Snarly Pines digis - Gnomes on Vacation!    I bet they're causing chaos all over the place.
Have to admit, all the DT have a lot of fun with the Gnomes...I absolutely love them and they're always great for a funny card. is the first episode of Gnomes on Vacation!   Don't forget to tune in next Sunday for the second episode featuring the makes of Team Manderly!

Take care & happy crafting!





and our GDT Naomi has made this stunning card for us...thank you Naomi!

Note- if you are using a Lacy Sunshine image, please add the # symbol behind your name so we will be sure not to miss you!  We check each entry but just to be sure!  xxxooo  (beginning as of 07/27/13)
