I’m A Sunshine Girl!!!!

Ok, here is my second post today. I don’t know about you, but the majority of my emails are bills, advertising or spam (if I have any more emails about PPI, I think I’ll go mad!). So you can imagine my surprise and delight, when I received one entitled ‘DT invite’. The email was from the fantastically talented Heather Valentin of Lacy Sunshine Stamps asking me if I would consider joining her Design Team. Well, of course I had to think long and hard about it – NOT! I’ve been a fan of Heather’s gorgeous digi images for a while and there was no way I would give up the chance to join her DT! There was a small nagging voice inside my head warning me about over-committing myself, but I figured the only thing that might suffer would be the housework, so, hey-ho, lol!
So, it’s official, I’m a ‘Sunshine Girl’ and my first DT card is for this fortnight’s challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog where the theme is ALWAYS ‘Anything Goes’ – what could be easier?  Only entries using a Lacy Sunshine image will be eligible for the random prize which is $30 worth of digis to spend in the Lacy Sunshine Store, although other entries will qualify for the Top Three prizes of their choice of 2 digis.
I was sent the cutest ever little fairy from Heather’s Sticky Wings range– meet Coco, she’s just adorable. I intended to go with traditional Christmas colours for my card, but ended up with non-contemporary purple and turquoise!
