Lacy Sunshine's Challenge 25- BINGO!

(if you are looking for the Winners of Challenge 24, please see the post directly below this one)

Hello there, Sweet Ones!
It's new challenge time!  New Release time, too!  Creations by the Sunshine Girls!  A new "Challenge Digi!" A whole new look for the Lacy Sunshine Store & Challenge Blog, too!  And, it's Relay for Life time, on top of it all! Oh, oh, and we are having a Blog Hop in February!  Grab something to drink and read on, as you can see we have lots to tell you today!

First up, our theme for Challenge 25 is BINGO.  Enjoy creating by going diagonal, up, down, or across! Or do the whole card like Sunshine Girl, Ria, did on her creation!

Next up, news about the Lacy Sunshine Store- it is now "Lacy Sunshine- A Crafter's Candy Shoppe!"  We have a whole new look that is a treat for your eyes and an official logo, featuring the yummy Frolic (look up at the top of this page)!  When you are done here, take a looksie at the store- sugar sweet overload!  Ohhh yeah!

Your new "Challenge Digi" goes along with our New Releases- Bugmees!  This little darling is "Jewel Junebug Buggmee."

Told you she was a darling!  If you used a Lacy Sunshine image in Challenge 24, this lil Buggmee is yours for free!  Just email Manderly at and put "Challenge Digi" in the subject line.  If you would like to buy Jewel, she is available in the Lacy Sunshine- A Crafter's Candy Shoppe (like that name?) for the discounted price of $2.00 during this challenge.  Which leads me to-

Relay for Life!
From January 19th to February 1st, all Buggmee proceeds  will be donated to "Relay for Life's Team Fighting Spirit of Michigan!"  If you love your Buggmees, now would be a wonderful time to purchase them.  We at Lacy Sunshine really encourage you to donate to this worthy organization that helps in the fight against Breast Cancer.  This will be Lacy Sunshine's 2nd year participating.  Our goal is to donate $1000!  We will tell you if we reached the goal next challenge, February 2nd.

Blog Hop- we are having our very first Blog Hop February 7th-8th.  Prizes galore!  We will have prizes as you hop along to each blog and 3 Grand Prizes of never seen exclusive New Release ClearStamps!  More details to come on our next challenge post, February 2nd.  Mark your calendar!

Finally!  What on earth is a "Buggmee?"  Buggmees are Heather's new line of characters based on bugs.  Yeah, I know, what??? Bugs? Well, that's our Heather! LOL!  Some of the Buggmees are based on real bugs and some are from Heather's artistic and vivid imagination, all sooo very stinkin' cute!  Here are the oh so talented Sunshine Girls to show you just what I mean-

How do you like those Buggmees?  We love your comments, feedback and suggestions.  Didn't the Sunshine Girls and Erin make pure gorgeousbugness? We hope you are inspired.  Such lovely work by all of them.  Extra special thanks to Erin for being our Guest Sunshine Girl-you did awesome! 

Whew!  Thanks for sticking in there through this loooong post!  Short recap- all Buggmee proceeds go to Relay for Life, Blog Hop coming February 7th, and finally, have fun creating and come back and link up what you made!  We LOVE seeing your artwork!

Sticky candy hugs,

  9. Could you please tell me what you mean by Card Candi? I am not sure if my card fits the challenge since I don't know what that is.

    1. Sorry for the confusion on Card Candi.... any decorative type element would work, like brads, gems and the like. Hope this helps...I'm sure your card will be fine! xxxooo
