Please Read .. Dont be Fooled by (COPYCATS!!!)

Hello everyone, Hope your all doing well.. I'm a little angry today and just feel like venting.
A few week ago it was brought to my attention that a artist  (Who Name I will not mention) is copying the designs and ideas and even the names of one of my favorite artists images.
Krista Smith from Saturated Canary
Who is one of the most genuine and talented artist I know.
You can read what she has to say about this on her blog Here
Love ya Hun!!
Anyways I cant believe someone would stoop that low!! Then claim them as her own.
And then sell them and try to profit from them!!
You should be ashamed of your self.. I say this as I see you are following my blog, And hope you are reading this!! I would delete you if I knew how. As I do not want any thing to do
with some one this dishonest!!
Please everyone don't be fooled  by copycats!! Buy the real deal!!
There I feel better now!!
OK on to a nicer note, I have two cards Id like to share with you.
 I have used the original designed Saturated Canary images by Krista Smith
On this one I have used Glinda
And here is Making Valentines

Well thanks everyone for letting me vent and for having a look at my cards..
Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments..
 Hugs, Linda

Just dropped by to catch up with you (Mr Blogger seems to be playing nice at the moment) and saw this comment.

This is such an awful way to behave and seems to be happening more and more - why do these folk think they can get away with stealing other folk's ideas.

On a happier and much nicer point - I love your cards. The colours are beautiful and those images are just so cute. Fabulous.

Stunning cards, really adore Krista's images and feel so sorry for her!!
Ok, to block , do the following::
Go to your dashboard, click on followers(where it indicates how many you have), up will come all your followers listed, when you click on one of them, you will see there is an option to block the person.
Hope this helps....:))
lotsa luv

Hi Linda,

I saw it all on Krista's blog this morning and it's just aweful what happens to her and her gorgeous images. Isn't it a shame that she cannot share her talent in the newesletter etc. just because there are such horrible shameless people on this planet??? What goes around comes around is all I can say!

Hug, Irene

ps: I LOVE the images and your cards.almost forgotten in the commotion!

Tracey said...

Linda Dale said...

Your cards are stunning as always. The images Krista has drawn are fabulous. Very sad that someone if our crafting community would copy her designs. Blessing, Linda

Loz said...

Stunning cards Linda..Sadly there is always going to be people who have no talent and copy someone else..Loz

Lynne in NI said...

Ohhh these are beautiful Linda! Makes me cross too when I see people blatantly copying the original artist, so I whole-heartedly support your 'rant'!!

coops said...

so gorgeous linda.your colours and details are beautiful and i love the sweet sc images :D
so sad to see kristas talent being abused.

xx coops xx

Regan said...

Sickening, isn't it?! I was appalled that someone was that brazen! Did she really think she was going to get away with it? That no one would notice? Krista is one of the loveliest people around! And so talented too! It is awful that she is forced to deal with this! I support her 100% and love that you spoke out in her defense, Linda! Your cards are both stunning, but I especially love Glinda! Simply exquisite!
Just say "NO" to second-rate copycats! :)
