I'm so excited!!!

Yipeeeee my edgies have finally arrived!! I've been waiting for these babies for months ever since I first saw them on the Spellbinders site when they first introduced them and I tried to win a set each day for a fortnight - no luck. I've not been able to buy them over here as they haven't been available until last week when I just hopped onto Create and Craft website and whoa and behold they were the pick of the day! Couldn't get them into my basket fast enough!!  In case you don't know what I'm rabbiting on about it is the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities and they are gorgeous.  They all interchange and cut and emboss and really do everything (they're in the kitchen now making dinner - I wish!!).  I was in the middle of making a card when they arrived so I had to incorporate a little border into my card didn't I? Here's the result:
I also used my new Marianne heart die I won at Cuddly Buddy (big thank you) and have used Nesties for the image and sentiment.  The papers are Raspberry Road and the image is a Teddy Bo download. The charm is from E Bay here's a close up:

The sentiment is Hero Arts and the ribbon is from a local haberdashery shop.  Here's a side view:

You can just see some more of my gorge Edgie!  Well DH and I are off to our Bridge lesson tonight, its our first "official" lesson - hope we don't get homework!!  I will hopefully pop around and catch up with all you fantastic bloggers later!  I will enter in the following challenges:

Aww this is really sweet Susan! Love the Teddy Bo/Bea image and the papers are delish! Gorgeous borders and frame and love the wee charm! Will have to keep an eye out for those Edgeabilities. I have some Border Punches but they don't work well on card and sometimes they get jammed on thin paper!!! they drive me nuts. So am thinking of getting some border dies. These look just the ticket!
I got my tooth restored and hopefully it will be ok. Hope you get yours sorted soon!! Chocolate has got a lot to answer for re. teeth!! My mum broke her false teeth on a Cadburys Chocolate Easter Egg!!!!
Take care!
Hugs Sue xx
