You may recognize the design on the left, as I first shared it back in February in this blog post
. The image on the right is from a fellow card seller, blogger and acquaintance of mine. She is closely connected to my internet circle and was a sponsor on my blog in February, when I first shared this stamp design.
I have had issues with this seller before and without going into too much detail, this was the best representation I could share of what has been going on. I’m most upset at this blatant lack of respect for creative integrity.
I hope speaking out about this will, in some small way, help reduce this growing problem more and more of us are facing. Originality and brand differentiation are key to having a successful business.

**Just to clarify, the seller was NOT one of the sponsors included in my February group sponsor post.**
