Friday Freebie Springtime promises

Hello everyone and welcome! Once again it is time for a Friday Freebie. I am longing for sunshine and warmth and Springtime. Today's freebie is all about Springtime promises.....
But, before I go on, I want to explain my T.O.U. in more detail: Someone has pinched many of my papers and tags and is selling them on ebay, without either asking me or doing anything to/with them. My TOU are as follows:
-You may print these images as often as you like for your crafting needs.
-You may re-size and/or alter them and incorporate them into your own digital work
- You may make things with these images and then sell what you have made, as cards, mini books or whatever your creative mind comes up with. If you want to give me credit that's great, but you don't have to.
- You may not sell these images unaltered either as sheets, stickers or similar!

Thought I would also show you a little project where I used the paper. It's a little gift bag.

If you printed the tag out large enough, it would fit perfectly inside.
 Hope you like today's offering. Thank you for visiting and see you next time.

Astrid, I love your images. I am saddened that someone is selling them without your permission. I always link back to anyones digital works. I certainly hope that this seller stops immediately or ebay shuts them down. Thanks for your generosity in sharing your beautiful creations.

More gorgeous freebies Astrid, thank you. And I love the bag - it really is beautiful and difficult to tell that it is actually a bag. Very saddened to hear that your generosity is being abused.

Thank you so much for explaining your TOU. I have never used your beautiful designs because I sell my cards in a very tiny seasonal gift shop my mother and I run in the summer. (I live on a very tiny island, so we don't have a lot of sales, but it helps pay the bills in the winter).

I didn't realize we could sell things we made with your designs!

Thank you so much for your generosity, and I hope the abusers lose their ability to use eBay.

Awesome freebie Astrid, the butterflies and dreamy paper are stunning, you are so generous with your work. Take care. XX

Louise (KardKrazy) said...

Astrid, I have saved a few of your freebies to use some time -- beautiful offerings!
It is quite sickening to think of what some people will do to make a few dollars. In the end it catches up with them I have no doubt.
Thank you for sharing with us!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
