It is with regret that I have to write this! I share my cards with fellow crafters because I LOVE to! I have sat back and ignored when two people specifically copied my tutorials that I wrote and took them as their ideas, I sat back when a lady was selling CD's with my cards on them, and now there is someone scanning MY colored images and claiming them to be her own and selling them on Ebay. My mind just does not work in this crooked manner to even think of scanning someone else's images. It takes me over an hour and a half to color each of the images and for someone to scan them in a few seconds, cut it out, and plop it on a card, just gets my angry. I will be adding a copyright clause to my sidebar AND putting the ugly watermark over all my images, because this is just WRONG!!!!!! I try like the dickens to give credit where credit is due when I create a card and I would appreciate the same. So please do not scan my colored images or use my work for profit. Thank goodness for my sweet friends who let me know when these things are happening. I can no longer be silent though, and felt it needed to be addressed. I am totally good with people using an idea here and there that I may come up with like flower arrangement or layout, that is what we all do is share ideas, but when you use a specific idea (such as a tutorial), credit needs to be given. It really is just common courtesy!
Thank you for all the sweet supportive people that follow my work and know when it is done by me! I am sorry that I will have to be putting the watermark over the image now. I feel that distracts from the card, but I guess you have to do what you have to do. Sooooo sad!!!
Thank you all for listening and understanding my frustration!
