Special Anniversary of the Lacy Sunshine Gang Challenge #10 - Please Read Post for Special Rules and Very Special Prize!

Hi everyone,

Wow...today is the start of a new challenge here at Lacy Sunshine and it's a very special challenge as June marks the first anniversary of the birth of the Lacy Sunshine Gang which all began with Heather Valentin's gorgeous Eleanor & Pickles.  Yes, they've been with us a whole year now and they've been fabulously successful.  Heather has created a beautiful video with many of the cards that the DT have made over recent months featuring the images.  The link to that is over in the right sidebar. 

So we're having a special challenge to celebrate and that means special rules so please read them carefully a little further down the page.

Firstly, though, I would like to announce the Winner and Top Three from Challenge #9

The Winner as selected by Random.Org is:

Which is Vicky P-R with this stunning card!


Congratulations Vicky...gorgeous card and your colouring is fabulous!

The Top Three as selected by Yours Truly (and it was NOT an easy task!) are as follows (in no particular order):
Pat K (73)
 
Nikki P (97)
 Angelique (151)

And the next GDT is:
Lynne Kirsch (170)

Congratulations to all of you...standards were so high and it really did take a long time to pick the Top Three.  Fantastic cards all round!  Thank you everyone for entering...we loved looking through your cards and it's incredible how much talent is out there. 

Please could the Winner and Top Three and GDT contact Heather at heather@purimagination.com with your choices of digis from the Lacy Sunshine Store and your beautiful blinkies, putting Winner, Top Three or GDT in the title.  That's $30 worth to the Winner and 2 digis each for the Top Three (not including retiring or pre coloured). 

********
 And now onto the special rules for Challenge #10 - The Anniversary Challenge. - Anything Goes (must include hand coloured image).

Basically to be in with a chance of winning you MUST use a Lacy Sunshine Stamps digi.  You will still be eligible to be placed as Top Three and GDT but you will not be entered into the draw unless you use a Lacy Sunshine digi.  There is a free one further down the page if you wish to use it. 

For this challenge only there is an incredible prize for the Winner...a CD containing every single Eleanor & Pickles digi to date 'Eleanor & Pickles The First Year - June 2012 to June 2013.'  That's over 90  digis from the very first one to the very latest one...ALL of them...even the retired ones!  How fabulous is that for a prize?!  It is worth an absolute fortune and the CD will be packed with the most adorable images.  Wow!  Someone is going to be very, VERY lucky.  The Winner will be drawn by Random.Org so that everyone is in with the chance of winning even if they've only just started crafting.  Can't get fairer than that. But remember you MUST use a Lacy Sunshine digi if you want to be in the draw for the big prize!

As always you are allowed to enter three times and each entry featuring a Lacy Sunshine digi will be entered into the draw once.

Top Three and GDT will follow the usual rules and all other rules remain unchanged.

********

And now for another very exciting piece of news...we would like you to welcome two new and fabulous members to the Sunshine Girls (DT)...the wonderful Manderly and the equally fabby Andree.  We're all thrilled to bits to have you with us and really look forward to working with you both and seeing the incredible creations I know you'll both come up with using Heather's Lacy Sunshine digis!  

So lots of exciting news in one post! Thank you for taking the time to read it all.

Here's the freebie that Heather is offering to you all this week.  If you would like the digi please contact Heather at heather@purimagination.com and put Challenge #10 free digi in the title.  This one's so cute and features Eleanor & Pickles on a camping exhibition but they are awakened in the night by strange noises.  They peep out of their tent to find a naughty baby bear cooking smores on their campfire!!! 

And now, in case you're in need of inspiration, we have some beautiful cards by the Sunshine Girls for you to enjoy, and I think you'll agree that they've all done fantastic jobs with their cards!

As it's such a special occasion being the anniversary of the Lacy Sunshine Gang we have all been given brand new Eleanor & Pickles digis to use.  All these digis are to be released this weekend along with a whole lot more!  I know the girls have had a lot of fun with these and I am sure that you will too.  They will be available over at the Lacy Sunshine Store.

Good luck everybody, and don't forget that if want to be in the chance of winning ALL the Eleanor & Pickles digis to date, then you MUST use a Lacy Sunshine digi.  Also, if you'd like the chance of being GDT for a challenge, you must put GDT after your name when you enter.

Take care and happy crafting!

  15. I've just found you through one of my other blogging buddies and your images are terrific, so I am going to try this challenge. The problem is my colouring really leaves a lot to be desired, my actual 'crafting' of cards is so different, but I will give it a go. Thanks for the image. DT inspiration is brilliant. Hugs, Jen :-) x

    1. Don't worry Jen. Our winner is drawn by Random.Org so everyone who uses a Lacy Sunshine digi has an equal chance of winning regardless of experience. There are some brilliant colouring tutes on YouTube...it's how I'm learning to colour and they really do help a lot. Good luck.

  16. Just entered my 3rd entry, but now couldn't put my name in full also couldn't add DT as it would not allow that many letters.
    Thank you for this great competition.
