Playing catch up with some tags

I was tagged by Paula & Yu-er and so ...
Crafting Questions. From Andrea.
1.If you could have £100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
Wow that's a lot of supplies here in Spore even if buying from the retail LSS' .... I would go with embellishments ! altho' I would prefer to buy papers & their matching embellies ...
2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub-ons, which would you choose?
Still being shy of stamping , I would definitely go with rub - ons .
3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
I'm a cardmaking scrapper , so if I had to choose one I wouldnt hesitate to go with cardmaking ! Never bored with it ! and as Paula said sometimes photos are limited to work with .
4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he)
This is easy - I would definitely go with my own scrapping room . Having a store is much easier said than done not to mention how competitive the market( manufacturers are the bigger winners i think ! rather than retailers ) is right now & having to keep up with whether one is stocking the latest & greatest ahead of your competitors etc etc ad nauseum
5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style....Now this can be tough to nail down!
My current style is colorful , graphic incorporating the latest products where possible.

Di Hickman's OCt Card Sketch 2 / DCM Santas Little Extra helper no.1

So here's your first "Santa's Little Extra Helper":
Christmas Words
We'd like you to use Christmassy words on your card, not just in the sentiment but for this challenge the word/s should form the main focus of your card - like in Rhi's "In a Word" dare of a couple of weeks ago So, you could use chipboard or wordy paper for instance - check the link to Rhi's dare and of course the relevant links list for even more ideas.

Tagged - 7 random facts....

I've been tagged by Dawn & Sadie B
list 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird
1. I've swum in rather high floods when I was 4 -5 yrs old growing up in Malaysia .
Beds & fridges could float ! & they weren't the only things that did ! lol
2. I never crafted as kid nor was I even known to be artistic !
3. I did learn how to do the catwalk at age 22 or so.
4. I only started cardmaking in my 30 somethings !
5. I've sent Josh Groban( my fave all time singer )
personalised papercrafting gifts in Japan & the US
( as in they were personally handed to him by various fans )
6. I still haven't stepped foot on any part of the USA yet . Sigh !
7. I dont think I could live anywhere without high speed internet connection !
thanks for the tag , ladies I didnt think I could come up with much ! lol
I'll be a spoilsport & skip tagging 7 others since this one's been going around already ...
