A bit more Christmas and some news

Happy New Year to you!  May 2015 be a blessed year for you and yours!  [2015??? How can that be???]

I've got a few cards that I made at the last minute.  I'm so terrible and very ashamed of myself this year.  MOST of our friends only got a Facebook greeting from us.  I started early and sent handmade cards to all of our family, but then life got in the way and I only sent a very few store-bought cards to some friends.  :(   Next year, I will do better!!

These are made using French Horn PDF Card Fronts Kit and COLOR French Horn from Doodle Pantry.  Some have more detail than others, and all were fairly quick and easy but still pretty! 

All I did here was mat it and tie a narrow gold ribbon.
I printed 2 of these and cut the green shape and popped it up a bit, then added a few adhesive pearls.
This was matted twice and the bow fussy cut and popped up.
The red mat was embossed and the gray was distressed.
Matted the image and embossed a border punched strip.

Image was matted and ribbon gathered with a star brad.

I said I had some news. Some sad, but some good and fun!  It's about Doodle Pantry.  Since she explained it well, I've just copied most of what Laurie posted at the DP blog...

1. First, a very unfortunate announcement.  Due to the VAT law changes in the European Union, the shop can no longer sell digital products to those living in a member country of the European Union, countries listed here, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. 

How am I regulating the sales?

  • The Paypal account will no longer accept payments from those with residential addresses in a European Union member country.  
  • Likewise, a pending order with a balance due will be cancelled immediately, and the downloads will NEVER be activated.  
  • If by a freak of technical chance, a payment actually goes through from someone in a European Union country, your order will still not be activated.
  • I do believe, however, anyone can win and use a PRIZE won from a challenge, as long as after you use the prize amount, there is not a balance due.  So I certainly hope those in the European Union will still play our challenge as well as those whom we sponsor for a chance to win.

2. IN January, we are changing our release days.  We will have between 2-5 NEW products EVERY Tuesday, 4 Tuesdays each month!!!  And when you shop on a Tuesday, the NEWLY released products on that day, will be marked 20% OFF!  But only on the Tuesday they are released!

3. Our Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge (DPDC) is GOING AWAY!

4. And a NEW challenge is starting!  What's the new challenge called?  It will be called Ants In My Pantry Digital Challenge (AIMPDC)! It will start on the FIRST Tuesday, and will accept entries for 2-1/2 weeks and winners announced on the 4th Monday of the month.  

  • The monthly challenge will have THEMES.  
  • There is no featured product.
  • Only enter once, follow theme guidelines.
  • Two winners are chosen by random.
  • I think it is going to be a lot of fun!

Sooooo, I'm very sorry for DP's European customers!  But remember you can still play the challenge and win and get free product.

A very beautiful Christmas card.We really appreciate that you are posting art with us in this two week challenge, at Word Art Wednesday. Blessings to you and yours, Carole

Gorgeous cards you made with that beautiful DP image. I didn't distribute many cards this year either. The high cost of Canadian postage is certainly a deterrent.
Happy New Year,

Each and everyone of your French Horn cards are beautiful. Now you have a great start on cards for the holiday season. LOL

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

I love all the different elements you have used on these cards, even though they were quick, it makes each one unique. Thanks for joining the Diecut Divas.Cathie DT
