Default Do you ever copy a card from a catalog?

I was taking a peek through the SU catalog and also the A Muse catalog earlier today. There were a few Christmas cards that I really, really liked and was thinking of making them for my Christmas cards this year.

Do you ever completely copy a card that you see in a catalog or magazine or online for your personal use? It's not like I'm going to be entering into a contest or anything. What's your take on it?

Isn't that what they make the catalogues for? To make it easier for my brain when i've got a creative block?

Yes ALL the time! But never take credit for the design or submit for a challenge. That's why I love CASEing challenges.
