I've been Tagged

I've been Tagged
by Andrea, she is a lovely ladie who makes the most beautiful cards
thank you andrea. There are 5 questions to answer so here goes

1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
paper, paper, paper no question

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose?
It would have to be stamps, I don't like rub ons., .......same goes for me

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?
Cards , lol i have only just got bitten by the bug as you can tell i'm not that good yet but practice makes perfect

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he)
A scrapbooking store, imagine looking at all the goodies all day long and been able to get just the right things when you want them........ same anwer as andreas ooo i would be in my elemant lol

5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style....Now this can be tough to nail down!
anything and everything lol all sorts to hard to nail down !!

Here goes, i know my cards are very bland compared, to the lovely cards etc that i have seen on all of these since i have been blogging, well I'm still a newbie and still learning !

i made this card using some luxury embossed card form, crafters companion, a cuttle bug embossing folder that i used with a sheet of some sort of wood, the effect came out grate i don't think you can tell that much on the pic but believe you and me it looks good in real life !! i used an unmounted father Christmas stamp from crafters companion , some ribbon and brads from my bit box
and some die cut photo corners using a wizard die i brought for my ATC's

  • The third is also for a friend i made it using Barbara's Decoupage Tulips Card & Gift Bag kit, this is another gorgeous card, i think all her cards are !! i also use crystal lacquers on the tulips
  • and last but now least the Fourth one i made this one just because lol just because i love butterfly's lol, i made it using Barbara's "Gerbera Daisy and Butterflies" Card and Pinch Box, i think i might frame this one !!
