Congratulations to each and every one of you...such beautiful projects!  Glad I wasn't choosing this week as all the entries were fabulous.

Please can the Winner and Top Three contact Heather at heather@purimagination.com with your choice of digis putting Challenge #6 Winner or Top Three in the title.  And could the GDT also contact Heather so she can send a digi and give you details for the next challenge.

*********
Now onto a bit of Sunshine Girl news!  As you will see we have a new member and that's Tracey Murphy.  We're so pleased to have Tracey on board with us as she's good for a laugh and pretty good on the crafty front too!  You can check out her blog here.  So welcome on board Tracey, and long may you stay a Sunshine Girl!  

 *********
Ok, now time for Challenge #7 and the theme this time around is Monochrome!  For this one we're making it a little easier by allowing skin and hair colours but on the whole it should be monochromatic.  

Please can you read the rules before entering and check that you are following them correctly.  There are a few people who are not linking back to the challenge, for instance, and that means you're not in the running for a prize if you were drawn/chosen, so please check that rules before entering.  And remember that if you use a Lacy Sunshine digi on your project then you are entered twice into the draw for each Lacy Sunshine project you enter.  And as usual, Heather is offering a free digi for those who wish to use it for the challenge.  You can request the digi by contacting Heather on heather@purimagination.com and putting 'Free Challenge Digi' in the title.  This one's called Mooning Morris - Bullseye and I've used him on my card (below).
The Winner will receive $30 to spend at the Lacy Sunshine Store and the Top Three will receive their choice of two digis (excluding retiring and pre coloured).  Blinkies all round for Winner, Top Three and GDT.


Good luck everybody.
Happy Crafting

For this week the girls were all given some brand new Gnomes of Gnarly Wood digis to use, and these ones have a sporty theme!  Everyone's absolutely loving using the Gnomes as they're fabulous images, always make you smile AND are great to colour.  Not only that, but as you get the pngs as well as the jpgs, you are able to set little scenes with them, which is a lot of fun!  I'm sure you'll all agree that the Sunshine Girls have come up trumps yet again with all their stunning projects.

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 Random.org):
 Which is:
Cabio!!!!



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

Tracey M (112)
 

GDT:
Bettina (191)
 


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

**********

Ok...now 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 heather@purimagination.com 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!
