Thank you to everyone who participated in our challenges, and shared their beautiful creations - the Design Team, Artists, and I really appreciate you. May you all go into 2019 with fabulous creative cards.
Winners will be announced on the 1st February.

Hello, good morning, hippy crafters! I am Eva Ng from Malaysia & your host for this challenge.

Digistamps4Joy is closing down!

To all our fabulous blog followers and digistamp friends.....

Sadly I had to make a very difficult decision today to close the Digistamps4Joy shop - after 9 wonderful years. This has been brewing on my mind for a while already, but I kept putting it off in the hope something would change.

My reasons are:

1. Sales are seriously  down, even with all the extra sponsorships and advertising I put in place in 2018. The income I receive barely covers the costs of running the shop (hosting, domain, InLinkz, bank fees, PayPal fees etc). This means I do all the work every month basically for no profit at all. 
2. Both the other artist (Jen) and I have had a difficult 2018, and we struggled to find time to draw new exciting images. Pinterest has also killed a lot of digistamp shops with all the sharing and "free" digistamps.
3. I need to focus on a new stage of my life since my recent retirement - whatever that will be.



This means that the January challenge will end 31/1/2019 and will be the last challenge. I will however still give out the prizes to the January winners, so please enter for January.

That was the bad news ... now for some really good news ... the prices of ALL the digistamps in the shop have been reduced by 50% - YES HALF PRICE. So now is the time to grab them, because they will all be gone after 31/1/2019!

On behalf of past and current Design Team members, artists, and myself, we thank you sincerely for all your support and blog entries! We have loved every entry submitted, and we will miss your participation and friendship.

May the Lord bless you all, and keep you safe in 2019.

Love and warm hugs,

Margy
