Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge Sponsorship


Hi everyone, today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Chocolate, Coffee & Cards and their challenge for the next two weeks is to make a card with a ribbon for a cause. There are so many different causes with ribbons lets see how many you can create. Glenda used Doodle Pantry's I Will Survive outline and coloured it blue for Prostate Cancer awareness.
Lori used Dizzy Dachshund and a purple ribbon (purple turns blue when photographed, lol) for animal cruelty awareness
and I used the I Will Survive outline and coloured it purple for Alzheimer's awareness.
I hope we've inspired you to play along with Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge. You could sit, relax, create and maybe you could make someone's day with a card to help them through a rough time.

UPDATED-If you are registered at our shop

I've turned off the comments for this post. 
THANK YOU for all your replies so far!  This has helped me determine how to communicate with customers.  While it seems most are ok with the emails, it is true that if there is no opt out, it basically is not the users choice, and therefore technically spam.
So I have found a NEW newsletter service and have added the signup box to our SHOP home page.  It is in the left menu, under the login field.  I have NOT transferred any recipients from the old newsletter service, so if you'd like to be notified of Doodle Pantry releases, please sign up again.
THANKS so much for your support!  ~Laurie

Hello!
I just have a question for ALL registered users at the Doodle Pantry Shop.
There is a function where I can send a mass email to ALL registered users letting you know when new releases are up and about limited time specials, BUT there is no way for the users to "opt out".

MY QUESTION FOR YOU:
As a customer of the shop, I would like to know if you would agree to receive 1 or 2 max emails per month reminding you that there are new releases and limited time specials, or would you rather not get any emails at all?

Just comment on this blog post either way, I am interested to know which direction I should head for communicating with customers about new releases.
Thanks so much and hope you are having a super week!

Gettin' ready for school New Releases

I can't believe how fast the first half of summer has gone by!  I've spread out my drawing time this month and slowly worked on products instead of cramming them all into the last couple weeks.

FIRST, here are our specials!
  1. School related items added to the DIGI GRAB BAG category and marked down 30% off from Aug 1 - 15!
  2. Float yer goat is free with any purchase from Aug 1 - 24, even if you are making a coupon prize purchase.
NEXT, you may have noticed that there were a few good changes at the shop.  
  1. I had to add a captcha for new account registration since I was being inundated with bogus spamming registrations. This just makes it safer for all of us!  MY information and YOUR information is now safer on my site.
  2. I had the login field added to the top of the left column so that is resides there on all pages. No more having to click to the browse shop menu in order to find the login area!
  3. Lastly, I had the "add to cart" buttons added at the thumbnail category level, so now you don't have to click into each product JUST to find the "add to cart" button.   If you already know what you want, you can add it to your cart from viewing the new release category!
What's in store for the near future??  A SHOP WISH LIST!!!!  Yes, it's on my list of things to do.  I've had several requests and it will finally happen before December 2012, provided there are no hiccups along the way.

Here are the new releases for today!

I have done a lot of color products for those we seek some quick school gifts or school favors.
I also have created 4 new Christmas card PDF printables.  I believe these are even better than the first 2 as far as layout and precise spacing.

I'll list out our new products below, and you can either click to each one, or just go the the LATEST RELEASES category.

There are 4 new quick card PDF's!  Each one has slightly different components, so just be sure to read carefully on the description what is included.  One of them is Card Fronts and gift tags only.

FRENCH HORN CARD FRONTS PDF

HOLIDAY ANTS CARD KIT PDF

HOLIDAY BIRDIE CARD KIT PDF

BLESSED CHRISTMAS CARD KIT PDF

Here are the new products this month (excluding the one for our challenge, which will be posted at noon eastern time!
FLOAT YER GOAT (free with purchase Aug 1-24)

SCHOOL BIRDIE

GINGERBREAD ANTS

SNOWFLAKE SHEEP

WINTER WORM
- coordinates with the Winter Accessories

HOLLY STAG (bonus includes a card fronts PDF!)


We've added color to a few older products too, and these sets also include outlines!
COLOR HOLIDAY SHEEP
(bonus added a hat and gloves to the gift holding sheep!)

COLOR FRENCH HORN

COLOR BOOK ANTS
- coordinates with the School Time digi paper pack, and Primary Patterns digi paper pack

COLOR BOOK WORM (bonus added a second image of a worm on a book!)

Don't forget our challenge will be posting in a few hours, and there will be a FREE DOWNLOAD for all to grab through Aug 15!  No waiting for a free image to be emailed to you!  This month is the last month we are offering the free product this way, so you won't want to miss it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are inspired to create, no matter where you shop!
