I absolutely love the work of Leanne Ellis and couldn't resist having a go at this week's challenge at
Leanne's stamps are available from
I have used Basic Grey Wisteria papers, and coloured the image with Copics. The "Believe" charm is a recent purchase from Quixotic Paperie (, other embellishments from my stash. Thanks for stopping by, and if you have the time I would love to receive your comments! Love, Sylvia xx

Well done for winning the challenge Sylvia! Poise is my favourite stamp from the set, and you have made a beautiful card with the stamp. Purple is my favourite colour anyway, but I love the vintage feel with the lace. Judith x

What a fabulous card Sylvia, it's a real stunner.
I thought everyone knew Claire was my daughter. We don't look alike so perhaps thats why you didn't make the connection. She got me into papercrafts.We share all our stuff, but not the 'bug now, as she got a bigshot for her birthday. We both said yippee! lol.
Love, Mayxx
