My friend

Hello my dears…
hope you have a fantastic week so far.
Have you ordered your new Magnolia stamps from the Sweet Rainbow Collection already??? I did yesterday and iam quite excited about this new collection. I was hoping for a while to get some gardening images to my collection. So much what we can make with them
Claudia_Rosa_My Friend_3
My card for today uses one of the previous or current collection lol… however you will call it. What a cutie… i wonder why i did not make a card with her sooner. Paired her up with this amazing Pion Design paper sweet Crissy gave me.
You may notice the watermark all across my images. I think from now on i have to do that, although i must say i HATE watermarks. If i go to a blog i want to see EVERY detail and not get distracted by watermarks. Unfortunately there are people out there who steal images off blogs, burn CD’s sell those as “card inspiration” or use the colored images to create blog banners, blog layouts, or even using the saved photos to create a own gallery on SCS and pretending it is their artwork. I have had it seen all :-) It is really upsetting. Iam not going to mention and link to those people, cause i do not want to give them the attention they seek but i think it is terrible to do such thing

Sassy Scrapper said...

Gorgeous card hun! I too love this image. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THE NEW MAGGIES OMG they are adorable!!!

So sorry to hear and see that you had to use a water mark. I don't like them either but unfortunately there are not so nice people out there. Your water mark is beautiful though very soft but effective.

Hugs Bonnie


Hi Claudia
A stunning and beautiful card
Hugs Dianne xx :)

Mariska said...

As always this is just gorgeous Claudia!! Love the shapes you've used for the inside sentiment! So sorry to hear the images of your gorgeous creations have been misused. I don't mind the watermark, I think it's your good right to protect your own work like this. Just a shame you have to. The watermark doesn't take anything away from the gorgeousness of your work though.

Crealin said...

Hi Claudia,

what a beautiful card and such a stunning coloring, I enjoy every detail about the card.
I really don't mind the watermark but it's so sad to hear that people take advantage of your work, time and creativity.

SandraR said...

Stunningly beautiful, Claudia! :-D
Really love the image of Tilda, beautifully coloured, and the embellishments you used.
I completely understand why you have to use a watermark. I don't understand the people who take other people's cards as their own. Lack of inspiration it is!

Have a lovely day today and thanks for your comments once in a while, love them!

Hugs, San

Danielle Champagne said...

Hello Claudia, your card is delightful. brings so much inspiration.Your coloring is gorgeous. I am sad when I read that people appropriate themselves work of other, cause I am grateful for those like you who SHARE, INSPIRE, otherwise, I would not have grown as a crafter like I did. Your watermark is discreet, it does not distract at all my sensitive eye.

Autumn Mist said...

This card is absolutely breathtaking! It is so sad that people have to steal other people's work though, isn't it?

doris said...

Die Karte ist wie immer ein wunderschöner Hingucker liebe Claudia!!

Hi Claudia,

This is amazing! I look through your watermark and see your wunderful work! I think "poor people" who use others creations.


Teri said...

Claudia!! She is just darling in every way!!! I am going to HAVE to get her!! Your coloring is fabulous as always!!
Your watermark is fine, it doesn't distract from your beautiful creation, although like everyone else, I'm so saddend by the fact that it must even be done! I couldn't ever be proud of myself knowing I stole someone else's work! Too sad....

Claudia! I so know how you feel! My cards were on the disk lady too! I can't believe people set up albums with other peoples work, how weird is that?

Gina K said...

Claudia, your work is definitely inspirational and I can imagine pretty much anyone wishing they could duplicate it. Stealing it is unforgivable and terrible, though! On to happier things: your card is darling. As always, you found just the right embellishments and your coloring is fantastic!

Loz said...

Elaina said...

Gosh, this is such a pretty card. If it were mine I do not think I would be able to part with it, lol.

Hi Claudia! One of my scrap-dreams is learning your coloring, it's really wonderful!

Hugs, Francesca♥

Sara said...

Beautiful card as always Claudia, your colouring is perfect. It`s a shame you`ve had to watermark but I understand, some of my cards have ended up on a CD being sold and it makes me so angry, the sad thing is I would glady share my designs with people if they asked but to have them stolen is hurtful. I love your cards and projects they always look so alive and fresh, hugs Sara xx
