Lacy Sunshine Challenge #18- Stitching, real or faux!

(if you are looking for the Winner's of Challenge #17, please see the post directly below this one)

*Welcome to Lacy Sunshine's Challenge #18!*
Hello, Lacy Sunshine Friends!  We hope this finds you doing well.  Are you ready for a new challenge?  Let's do it!  Challenge #18 has the theme of "Stitching-real or faux."  Is "faux" a fancy way of saying "fake?"  I think it is! LOL Anyway, show us some stitchin'!

How about a Challenge Digi?  Trick or Treat, we have a real cutie-pie fun one for you!  Her name is "Candi Corn Sticky Wings."
If you used a Lacy Sunshine image in the last challenge, you are automatically in the "Loyalty Program" and you get Candi Corn for free!  If you didn't use a Lacy Sunshine image in challenge #17, then you can purchase the Challenge Digi for the discounted price of $2.00.  Just go to the Lacy Sunshine Store and you will see her!

Let's go to our fabulous Sunshine Girls' and see what they have for you this week.  We all had a fun time doing a little Tricking & Treating!

Lacy Sunshine's "Under the Sea Challenge #17"- Anything Goes

((:if you are looking for the Winners of Challenge #16, please see the post directly below this one :)) 

***Lacy Sunshine DT Call!  Click here!***

Hey there Lacy Sunshine Friends!  Are you ready for Challenge #17?  We are ready for you!  First, a few things to let you in on-

We sadly say farewell to Lynn.  We wish you the very best, Lynn!  You and your awesome work will be missed by all of us.

With Lynn leaving, we say hello to 2 new Sunshine Girls!  We'd like to welcome Aletha and Ria.  We think they will make a great addition to the team and we are betting you will like them, too!

Now, onto this week's challenge and the debut of Heather's Seakissed Mermaid Collection! Wait til you see these beach babes!  Your gonna love em'!  I can hear you- gimme gimme! LOL You can find them in the "New" section of the Lacy Sunshine Store.

Our theme for Challenge #17 is ANYTHING GOES!   Let's start this debut by showing our Challenge Digi, Pearl.
Remember, if you used a LS image in the last challenge, you get Pearl for free.  If you are new to "Lacy Sunshine's Challenge Digi Loyalty Program," please read all about it under the rules tab or sidebar.  If you need to purchase Pearl, she is discounted to $2.00.  You will find her in the LS Store.  This will get you started in the Loyalty Program as long as you enter Pearl or another Lacy Sunshine image  in  the  current  challenge.    If  you  qualify  for  the free Challenge Digi, please email Heather at and put "Free Challenge Digi" in the subject line.  Heather will get Pearl out to you ASAP!

Now let's venture with the Sunshine Girls as we go "Under the Sea,"

Aren't these creations just amazing?  All with such different styles.  Even those of us that used the same Seakissed Mermaid look so different from one another that you hardly realize they are the same image!  Thanks for your wonderful work, Sunshine Girls!

We hope you will share your art with us over the next 2 weeks!  All of us at Lacy Sunshine enjoy seeing what you make and I can assure you that Heather herself checks out each individual entry!  We would love to see you use Pearl on your project, Lacy Sunshine's Challenge Digi, but of course you can use whatever image you desire (sadly, all except for Sherri Baldy's images.)  EWWW, and think how fun it would be to pick 5 images if you win the random draw, or win an image of your choice if you hit one of the Top 3 spots!  Whooo Hooo, sounds like fun to me!

Wishing you a great few weeks and hoping you gets lots of crafting time!

The Lacy Sunshine Family

 **Remember to put GDT behind your name if you would like to be considered for a GDT spot.  If you don't make it this time, please try again.  The Sunshine Girls each take a turn picking their favs, and each have a style that appeals to them.  We love to see that "GDT" behind your name!

Monique participated in Lady Heather's Friday the 13th Facebook Group Mini-Challenge with the image above, named Amelia.  (Heather even made a great video featuring her new Lady Heather's Curiosities- well worth watching!) We had a lot of fun in the FB group Friday- Amelia was given away free to anyone that wanted to create a card for the mini-challenge; we played games and the winner(s) received a Lady Heather's Curiosities image!  We all enjoyed ourselves very much.  You should come join us!  We are even going to have a Christmas Card Swap and Heather is giving the images for the swap free to all who want to participate!  Back to Monique- thank you Monique for all your support and faithfulness to Lacy Sunshine.  We appreciate you very much!

Lacy Sunshine Challenge #16- Dies and/or Punches

(if you are looking for the winners of Lacy Sunshine's Challenge #15, please see the post directly below this one)

Hello Friends and welcome to Lacy Sunshine's Challenge 16!  Our theme this fortnight is "dies and/or punches."  One of the Sunshine Girls said it would be harder to NOT use dies or punches! LOL!

Each of the Sunshine Girls had the privilege to pick a Flower Pot Pretties and I bet you agree that they are definitely Pretties!  They are soooo addictive, too!  Once you color one, you want more and more!  And more!!!  

Heather has given a real cutie Flower Pot Pretties for your Challenge Digi- Luna Moon Flower.  Pat, our Guest Designer, and Sunshine Girl Mandy,  picked Luna for their make, doing up super examples for you to see how beautiful this image is! 

Before we get to the DT's creations, let's take a sec and review how the "Loyalty Program" works.  This is a program designed for our loyal fans, you!  Each time you use a Lacy Sunshine image in the current challenge, you get the next Challenge Digi for free.  In this case, Luna.  Then, if you use Luna (or another LS image) in the challenge, you get the next Challenge Digi for free!  If you didn't use a LS image in the current challenge, then you can purchase the Challenge Digi at the discounted price of $2.00.  Use it, you get the next free and so on.  All you have to do is email Heather at and in the subject line put "Free Challenge Digi."  We keep track but sometimes we may miss a few so we are trusting that you used a LS image in the challenge when you request your free image.  If you need to purchase your Challenge Digi to get you started in the Loyalty Program, just go to the LS Store and purchase as you normally would.  If you have any questions at all, please email Manderly at 

Now let's get onto some more good, good stuff!  Just look at what the Sunshine Girls have created this time!!!  Gor-ge-ous!!!

Didn't Pat and the Sunshine Girls do a marvelous work with the Flower Pot Pretties?  Look how beautiful Pat and Mandy did with Luna, the Challenge Digi!  Thank you, Pat, for being with us this fortnight!  Sunshine Girls- YOU ROCK!!!

We are excited to see what you make this next fortnight!  We hope you'll try Luna or another of Heather's wonderful images, but you are more than welcome to use any image you like (excluding Sheri Baldy's work).  Be sure to use a die or punch somewhere on your project.

Remember, if you would like to be considered for a Guest Designer spot, please put GDT behind your name.  If you don't get picked this time, please don't give up!  The girls have a really hard time picking with so many fab creations!

All of the Sunshine Group wish you the very best over the coming weeks.  Until next time....
The Lacy Sunshine Family
