"Little Rabbit," she said, "don't you know who I am?"
The Rabbit looked up at her, and it seemed to him that he had seen her face before, but he couldn't think where.
"I am the nursery magic Fairy," she said. "I take care of all the playthings that the children have loved. When they are old and worn out and the children don't need them any more, then I come and take them away with me and turn them into Real."
"Wasn't I Real before?" asked the little Rabbit.
"You were Real to the Boy," the Fairy said, "because he loved you. Now you shall be Real to every one."

Also, trying to give credit to a talented artist isn't wrong. Stealing in any form is. Period. It doesn't matter if this has been going on forever, it's wrong! So go hide in your hole of justification. Coffinberry had every right to know, so did her followers when she lied and said they spent hours making these images. We're getting ready to release another 17 stolen images that Kerin said she made herself. That's fraud and just dirty business.
This image has been stolen by the Admin, Kerin, at I Am A Mother To An Angel. She's been profiting of thefts like these, scamming the bereaved families, and hides under the guise of helping people. She has claimed these as her art. Please don't let her get away with it. If you click each image she states they are hers. Can we do anything to prove this is your artwork?
dazeaustin, get your facts straight. This image may very well be the original creation of coffinberry but there is no watermark or anything else on it. It could have been going around the internet for years with absolutely no credit at all. Unfair? Probably. But that is the nature of the Internet. To blame Kerin for allowing a graphic made with this image as the background *when she didn't even create the graphic herself and the person who did has apologized* is just absurd. You haters will latch onto anything at all, won't you? I'm really sorry for coffinberry also as she did not bring any of this upon herself. Please do us all a favor and work on your own life, work and family instead of grasping at straws to get back at someone who has done absolutely nothing to you.
There doesn't need to be a watermark, there's already a copyright on the image and all of my licensing is set to not allow anyone 'free use' of this image. I've had this image stolen many times, I know how to handle this, thank you.
AHHHHH F***CK NO!!!! YOU DID NOT JUST DO THAT!!!! Omg, I love you. I do. I want to marry you. I love the Velveteen Rabbit! It was my absolute favorite story when I was little!!! Oh my goodness, I had thought people had forgeton te poor bunny...

Anyway, all I could find was this (link above). I actually found it elswhere first [link] . It took me a little while to find that it was yours. I just love it thats all. Thanks!
