I was taking a well deserved break this afternoon & doing a bit of blog hopping while watching Deal or No Deal & then Richard & Judy. Richard (I can call him that now we're on first name terms lol!!!) asked for people living in Leeds to email in to review The X-Files film next week, so, as I had my laptop on my knee, I emailed straight away . . . . . . . . . and . . . . . . . . one of their researchers phoned me this evening & asked me if I would do a review YAH!!!
I used to watch the X-Files years ago & love anything like that so at least it's a film I'll enjoy. I'm not allowed to wear any logo'd clothes & will be interviewd after the film of which a snippet (hopefully) will be shown on Richard & Judy next week (I think it's Friday)
My mum's told me NOT to talk with a Yorkshire accent lol!! a bit difficult having being born & brought up in Leeds but I'll try & 'talk posh' lol!!

Things that grow!
The obvious things would be plants etc but really there are lots more things that grow, we look forward to seeing your own interpretation
Well I went for the obvious & chose flowers . . . . .
The pink card is Bazzill Bling (my favourite) & the DP is Kay & Co matted on blue card. The seed packet was a free download from Mad About Cards & the gardening tools are Quickutz. I had great fun (NOT!!!) trying to stick down the resin flower beads as I only have a glue gun or Anitas Sticky so I chose the glue gun so you can imagine what a mess I got in to as the beads are so tiny lol!! I managed to get rid of most of the excess glue from the card!!
The image is coloured using watercolour pencils & the ribbon was in the blog candy I won from Jennifer.
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine, we've had another scorcher here in Leeds. Long may it continue !!

The candy includes a brand new Magnolia stamp & 200 stamped images.
Claudia has a really inspiring blog which I visit often. - ends 19/7/08
For this weeks challenge I've used the cute Maggie with present stamp from Sugar Nellie.
I've paper pieced the present & mounted it on 3D foam.
The image has been coloured with watercolour pencils & whispers pens.
I've used the Nestabilities circle dies for the image & the scalloped circle & the DP is retro floral (I really must start using different DP lol!!)
I cut the letters using Sizzix Girls Are Weird.
