Do you have a Prize or Reward coupon that you have not yet used?

I am cleaning up my coupon usage records before the year is over.  There are a few winners of the DPDC's this year who still have not used their coupons, as well as unused coupons I gave for loyalty rewards for those who spent at least $12.00.

If you won a DPDC and have not yet used your coupon, or if you have a reward coupon already issued, you might want to check to see if there is anything you want and use your coupon soon.

The DPDC winners unused coupons older than 4 months (that means winners from DPDC49 and earlier) will be deleted Jan 2, 2015.

Reward coupons are deleted after 1 year of unuse. Check when you were issued a reward coupon.

I am showing that 1 winner from each of the following DPDC has not used their prize coupon. I already know who you are, but I need you to contact me directly if you cannot locate your coupon.

Winners were notified by email at the end of the challenge they won, so if you are not sure, just go back to the winners post for each challenge listed (click the challenge numbers above) to see if you won and maybe didn't get your winners email.  We ONLY email the prize information to the email that was included in your inlinkz entry, so as to ensure that the true winner is the one receiving the prize.

Also, those who have a reward waiting, if the reward was for more than 2 products, a reward coupon was made for you and emailed. Please check your junk email boxes, just in case.  If you made a comment in your order and your reward was for only 1 product, that product was added to your order and instructions were emailed on how you can retrieve it.

Thanks for visiting us today and I hope you enjoy your day.
Be safe, be blessed, be inspired, and get crafty!

Announcements for 2015 and a Blog Candy Prize

Good afternoon everyone!    Tomorrow, Dec 24, at 12 Am, we will announce the winners of DPDC53.

TODAY, I have some announcements about changes that have to happen at Doodle Pantry in 2015. And there is blog candy offered at the bottom of the post...

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!
5. Now for some blog candy!  MAKE A COMMENT on this post to enter. I will announce a winner Dec 30 and you have 3 days to claim your prize. If the first winner does not share their contact email on their blogger profile, and does not come back to see if they are a winner, then I will redraw.   What's the prize?  See below.  (I have much more clear stamps that I acquired from left over stock after CDS closed, so I will be offering more clear stamp prizes in 2015)
  • $15 gift coupon to use at
  • 4 clear polymer stamp sets of Doodle Pantry images (previously marketed under CDS) Seasonal Swags, Classic Monogram Alpha, Josephine Clematis, and Moose Friends
  • 8 individual mini clear polymer stamps of Doodle Pantry images (previously marketed under CDS) Mr. Spike, Flying Dove, Tiny Tree, Baseball Cap, Muffin Cupcake, Norman Snail, Harietta Hippo, Pizza Slice
  • 3 satin ribbon spools
  • 1 Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22 die set new
  • 1 mini THANKS die (was a free die in October from Taylored Expressions)
 Mini Clear Polymer Stamps shown above
 4 clear polymer stamp sets above
Dies and Ribbon above
Thanks for visiting us today and I hope you enjoy your day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~WHERE ARE YOUR DOWNLOADS?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have had many inquires on order downloads and that you are not receiving the download emails with download links. Sometimes the emails that are automated from the server are just not accepted by mailboxes and I don't know why it happens to only some.
BUT, do not worry, I have GREAT news!

You DO NOT need the download-info email to download your purchases. Once your payment is completed, you can just be logged into your account, go to accounts from the top menu, then select my account.

Only paid orders will allow the green icons to function.  Your downloads are ALWAYS available this way. You NEVER need the email with links.

In case you are unaware, I wanted to remind you of OUR LOYALTY REWARD PROGRAM: If you spend $12 after the coupon is applied (and before Texas state tax), you get 1 free product valued $3 or less, as a reward!   HOW TO REDEEM, When using a discount coupon for a sale, in order to get your reward product(s), you must put a note in the comment field telling me which product(s) you want as a reward. It will either be added to your order screen for downloading within 2 days, or I will email it to you at the email on your account.

Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 53

NOTE:  I had originally planned to not have a challenge for December, and I told several people that.  The reason was because I am going to be very busy with holiday plans and family and I didn't want to have to be checking in on the challenge to email out featured product to folks.
However I decided that we could have a challenge without a featured product, and there will still be 2 winners. The end date is a couple days sooner, as I don't want to have to email winners on Christmas morning. Last day is 22nd at 9 pm eastern.
*THERE IS NO featured product for December 2014.*

(ONE ENTRY per person) 
You may use ANY company DIGITAL image to be entered for a FINAL PRIZE COUPON drawing.

New products today - need last minute Christmas card ideas?

Good morning!   Hope everyone in the U.S. had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday week and weekend.
In case you still haven't finished your Christmas cards (like me), we have a few new Christmas products released today.  All have digitally pre-colored images included with digital PNG pattern papers, to make for quick multiple card creating.

ALSO, I had told some of the previous challenge entrants that there was not going to be a December challenge, but I decided we could have a challenge, but just no featured product.  My December is entirely too busy to have to worry about checking the linky for entrants needing to be emailed the featured product.  But at least you can enter any digi creation for a chance to win! That will happen at noon eastern today.

Our specials this month:
The NEWEST December releases today are 25% OFF from today thru December 3. The discount is already marked off, no coupon needed!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~OUR NEW PRODUCTS~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MILK & COOKIES - limited time Free w/purchase December 1-24. Add to your cart of other purchases, and this one gets included for free!
You'll want to get this set.... our January challenge will have a theme and this product "fits" the theme.

WRAPPING IT UP -a birdie and ants wrapping gifts. The ants can't help but pick on one of their own..

CHRISTMAS CACTUS - Beautiful flower in 3 colors and outlines too!

CINNAMON & BERRIES - some "warm" feeling images. Good for other occasions, not just Holidays.

HOLIDAY PARTRIDGE - This partridge in a pear tree is a little bit whimsy, a little bit fancy.

ALL IS CALM - MINI SET!   Only $1.25

BETHLEHEM SVG CARD CUT - Mask a digital scene or cut the SVG shapes with your e-cutter for a quick layered card. Comes with digital PNG papers!

CARD CUT BASICS SVG - Card cuts in 4 basic shapes when you want a simple card cut.

GIFT CARD HOLDER SVG - It's a card AND a gift card holder, all in one!  (I wonder if it will also fit a Ghirardelli square in there!?)

CANADIAN GOOSE - Has wings, but holds up traffic walking across street.  This goose looks great dressed up in the accessory sets (Hats & things, Winter accessories, Birthday accessories, Santa accessories and Topped with class)!

DAILY DEVOTION - Open Bible with several verses.
VINTAGE GLOBE COLOR PLUS -  I added digital color and digital PNG papers. Includes the original outlines set PLUS a few NEW sentiments!

CHARLIENE BAKING -previously a clear stamp and outlines digi at another shop, I added color/papers to Charliene Baking.  Includes her holding a platter with butter, cookies, pie or turkey on it. ALSO includes her holding an empty platter so you can put ANY digi on it.

RAILROAD MEMORIES - this was also an old clear stamp set at a past online shop, and when I opened my file to prepare it for digital, I found the caboose image in there which was NEVER part of the original clear stamp set.  I decided to include it in this set!

SNOW CROCUS - also a previous clear stamp from long ago.  Now in digital with some new sentiments!

Thanks for visiting us today and I hope you enjoy your day.
Be safe, be blessed, be inspired, and get crafty!
