Flappy Christmas

I have been so busy with making cards for my Christmas orders that I didn’t even have time to post. I was thankful when I finished my last card last week but then I chilled for a couple days before getting my niece for a couple days so today is the first day I had time to sent down in front of the computer.

This card was made for the 52 {Christmas} Card throwdown challenge that ended on Dec 19th. But now I’m using it to tell you all of the sad news that Deedee’s Digis is closing shop Jan 31st. The new VAT tax law that goes into effect on Jan 1st is putting a lot of small digital companies out of business. The law was intended for big stores that sell games and digi downloads but they did make any exceptions for the little artist selling stamps for fun. If you haven’t heard about this read up on it…it is horrible for the small business. They would have to hire an accountant just to deal with sells to VAT countries…not feasible when you sell a digi stamp for $3.  So if you live in a VAT country and want ANY digi stamps you need to get out there and buy them before Dec 31st. There are several digi companies that will not be able to sell to VAT countries after Dec 31st even though they are keeping their doors open.

Deedee’s Digis is having a 75% off Store Closing Sale…check it out. Everything is under a $1.00. You can get a lot of cute digis for a little money right now.

I used Sketch -N- Scrap Card Sketch #39 for my inspiration. The sentiment inside says “Wishing you a Flappy Christmas”. My husband came up with “Wishing you a Flappy Holiday” but by the time I got to my computer I had accidentally switched it to Christmas.
