Maxine, thanks for the link! That's pretty scary! I actually considered leaving Pinterest last year when all that hoopla arrived about the whole copyright thing came out, but in the end, I'm not on it often enough to really make a difference. I just didn't have the time or energy to devote to "one more thing" but it's scary to think how often people steal from others. Like come on! I have had cards stolen. I even had a friend head me in the direction of a lady who copied one of my cards TO A "T" and entered it into a contest and won - $50! And yes, it had my c/o siggy on it, LOL. I just let it go. What can you do.

Sometimes you see that people post similiar things and you think, it would be nice if they give you credit by saying I was inspired by "this" but to downright copy it, or change it in a harmful way like that lady in your link with the shopping cart full of kids? That's just sad and mean.

Sorry, soapbox tangent! I actually have to get steppin' on a few cards this week so I'll be pulling an all-nighter since we're heading out the door!

Hugs to all!
Oh wow! That really took guts for that lady to actually steal your card and make it into her own. Bummer that you didn't get the $50 prize for it.

I do follow one lady that has a lot of sketches on her blog that she put so people can use them, but I always giver her credit for the layout if I post it somewhere. I just love her work.
Working interferes with my personal life!
