Challenge # 9 - Anything Goes! *****MUST include hand coloured image!

Hi Folks!

Hope you've all had a good couple of weeks?

I have a few special announcements to make this week, but first I will announce the winners of Challenge #8 - Anything But a Square.

The Winner (as drawn by Random.Org) is:
Monique! (23) with this beautiful 'flower.'

The Top Three as selected by Heather Valentin herself are (in no particular order)
Rebecca (29)

Nikki P (36)
 
Pam Phelps (53)


And the GDT for the next challenge (also selected by Heather) is:
Julie J (47) with this adorable card.


Congratulations everyone - all stunning projects.
Please could you all contact Heather at heather@purimagination.com with your choice of digis ($30 worth for the Winner and 2 digis of their choice (excluding retiring or pre coloured) to each of the Top Three.  Heather will provide a digi for the GDT to use for the next challenge.
Please put challenge #8 Winner/Top Three or GDT in the title of the email.

Now, I have some very sad news as the lovely Linda Simpson is moving onto pastures new (mooooo!  lol) as she has been given an opportunity she can't refuse so we all wish Linda lots of luck in her adventures.  She'll remain a very dear friend to all of us, though we might get a bit of peace and quiet sometimes now, lol.  Best of luck Linda...we love you. xx

Now for some news which I'm sure that many of you will be pleased to hear.  From this challenge onwards ALL the Lacy Sunshine Challenges will be Anything Goes!!!!  How cool is that?  It means that you can allow your imaginations to soar without restriction except that ALL projects MUST include a hand coloured digital or stamped image, meaning a picture NOT just words please. 

So the theme for this challenge (and every other challenge!) is Anything Goes!  Yay!

Remember that if you enter into the challenge using a Lacy Sunshine image each entry (up to 3 per challenge) will be entered into the draw for the $30 top prize twice...given you double the chance of winning.  Rude not to really, especially when Heather always gives away a fantastic free digi to anyone who wishes to use one in the challenge.  And this challenge's freebie is an absolute stunner!

Meet Stardust Satyress!!!!  Isn't she just wonderful?
And here she is coloured by Heather - so beautiful:


The Sunshine Girls have been following a theme of Mythology for this challenge.  All the images are brand new and will be released on the Lacy Sunshine Store this weekend.  I'm sure that you'll all agree they are very special and we'll be seeing more on this theme in the near future.  

So, without further ado I give you the Sunshine Girls beautiful inspiration for Challenge #9

Challenge #8 - Anything But a Square (Handcoloured image MUST be used).

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok and have been enjoying the slightly better weather?

I need to start off today by pointing out that a large number of entries are not following the rules.  I drew the Random.Org several times and came up with projects without a handcoloured image.  ALL projects MUST have a handcoloured image, either stamped or digi.  As lovely as the cards were, they missed out on the prize.  PLEASE READ THE RULES so you don't lose out as well.

The Winner this week (as drawn by Random.Org) is:
Which means that the winner of $30 of Lacy Sunshine digis goes to:

           Dawn Lancaster (18) with this gorgeous card:

And the fabby Meredith has chosen this weeks Top Three and GDT, and the Top Three are (in no particular order):
Julie P (8)
tutu sweet Tracey Mo (19)
 
Nat (24)
 LOTV Monochrome
                                
And the GDT for the next challenge is:
Manderly (49)
 

Huge congratulations to all of you...absolutely beautiful projects, Girls.  Please could you contact Heather at heather@purimagination.com with your choice of digis from the Lacy Sunshine Store ($30 worth for the winner and 2 each - excluding retiring and pre coloured - for the Top Three.  Please put Winner/Top Three or GDT in the title when you mail.  Thank you and have fun playing with your new digis.

Today's challenge is Anything But a Square, so we don't want to see any square cards this week.  Another nice easy one for you. 

The DT have been given more new Lacy Sunshine digis to use for this challenge, and we've followed an animal theme this week.  All these digis are now available at the Lacy Sunshine Store (along with other new releases) and they're just so gorgeous. 

As always, Heather is releasing a freebie digi for anyone who would like to enter using a Lacy Sunshine Challenge, as all entries using one of Heather's digis are entered into the draw for the Winning spot twice for each entry using a Lacy Sunshine digi.  So if you would like to use this adorable image, please contact Heather with Challenge Freebie in the title.
 
Ok, good luck everyone.  Hope you enjoy looking at the wonderful Sunshine Girls' inspiration.  And talking of The Sunshine Girls, we'd like to welcome back Lynn Whitehouse!  Yay.  It's fab having you back on the team Lynn.  xx

Take care & happy crafting!
