Obviously I don't stand at my shows and state "I give full credit of this design to Susie Q in Idaho".
Just like when my customers copy my cards I don't ask them to tell everyone that they made the card but I designed it....

I understand the issue is that she posted it on her site.....and you said that she said that she cited her original inspiration as SCS (but no specific name). ..... so I guess my question is "isn't that the point of you sharing- to inspire others". It sounds as though she recreated the card and then posted it with an "inspiration given elsewhere" note. Am I right????

Guess I'm just confused as to what is the point of posting on SCS if you don't want people to copy you???
ITA- there are so many threads about people CASE'ing and not getting credit-Once you upload your creation here, it's up for grabs for casing - it's the whole basis for the gallery! Don't sweat the small stuff, try to be flattered instead!

If she actually took YOUR uploaded image, yes, i can see that being a problem and you should address it. Your watermark on a photo will prevent that in the future. But if I read this right, she made her OWN version of your card, uploaded a pic of it on her site and said "inspired by SCS" ? She's done nothing wrong...
