Not only has this been inspiration on her challenge I also saw it when it was originally posted! Love the sketch but apparently it scares me and my brain freezes when I try to do it. So I never conquered it…till now!! When I saw it again as inspiration on the Card Sketch challenge I knew I had to do it. Which this time wasn’t as hard as I had the perfect digital stamp from Diane’s Daydream Designs to work with – Christmas Wonder Sentiment Set. I love how it came it. It was also quick which was good because one of my regular customers forgot to play his Christmas card order for 16 cards and needed them in 2 days. So I made 5 of these! The blue patterned paper came from a DCWV paper pack that I got free from my friend Lisa.
If you like this digital image then you must get over to Diane’s Daydream Designs as she is closing shop on Dec 30th. This is what she wrote:
Daydream Designs will be closing December 31 due to tax regulation for online digital download businesses like this one. The foreign tax is call VAT (Value Added Tax) and it requires US businesses to assess taxes for sales in countries in the European Union. The regulations are cumbersome, and create an impossible paper nightmare for small companies. One way around the situation would be to limit sales to US customers only, but that would cut into nearly half of all Daydream Designs sales. That scenario makes profit impossible and necessitate the close of our store.
Hopefully there is one small silver lining for all of us….our CLOSE OUT sale.
From now through December 30
