Sorry about the early post, it was too late to show you my latsest card lat-night. Thanks for all the lovely comments and congratulations i recieved from you all.... we went to the Emmerits,
{ Arsnel} yesterday as a treat with my sports group. {not that any of us support them lol }
I'd been up since half 6 and i didn't get back till half 7.... what a jam packed day!
Luckily i had this card made.

Paper and cardstock- BG Offbeat
Image- Edwin from the new Magnolia set
Embellies: Brown Raffia Lace, Boy Charm, Buttons and brad from stash.

This is the first time i've used a charm on my card, i couldbn't work how to do it at first, and thgen i found Bevs fab tutorial. Thanks.
The little Charm is from Nikki at Bunny-Zoes Crafts ... i just love it! I've also used some gorgeous Raffia Lace.
I've made a boys card for once as i always struggle with them, i thought surfing would be great for most ages so out popped Edwin! :O)
I've followed the fab sketch over at Truly Scrumptious, thankyou girls, i really loved working with such a great layout.
I'm also antering this into Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is a recipie,
2 Papers, { the purplish cardstock is actually BG Sugered, hope this counts xx }
1 Ribbon, and 3 buttons.
Here's a Close-Up:

My gorgeous parcel arrived from Jacqui yesterday with my fab stamps and a stunning card, i tried to photograph it but my cameras played up, i'll get a better picture today! :O)

Thanks for looking, any comments are appreciated,

Fern xx
