Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Beware!!!

To all my followers a little bit of advice:-

It has come to light that a "person" is copying cards from blogs and writing onto CD's and selling on Ebay as her own work. The seller has been reported and has taken the hump about it - cheeky mare!!!! She is selling several different CD's with hundreds of images on and claiming wither her own work or she has paid the person and got permission which she has not.

PLEASE...... make sure you add a watermark onto your finished projects before posting on your blogs so the photos cannot be stolen and passed off as someone else's work.

UPDATED.

I had my watermark made at Siggi Shop but can also buy them from Whimsy stamps or you can make them yourself as long as the background is clear and file is PNG format.

She has 4 of my cards on her cd. I'm absolutely furious. I've reported her and will seek legal advice.

Very nice of her! Don't people know that eventually the truth gets out! It's a cutthroat world we live in for sure.
