Forever Friends and Cute Card Thursday and Lillyboo

This is my card for Cute Card thursday which is New Beginnings and also my card for the new Lillyboo challenge(they give you this free download to use and isn't it wonderful)- found out about it form my funky hand teamie Enfys who is on the DT- you will find the link under challenges on the right hand side of my blog

Oh dear- just realised there is actually a recipe that goes with the Lilly Boo challenge- 2 Ribbons, 3 Flowers and 4 Brads- not even close- so will have to redo this challenge- yet another KRAFT moment from me!!!!

This is my card for the Forever Friends challenge which is Brads or Eyelets
I used brads to decorate my embossed panel and the papers are Cosmo Cricket

What a night I have had- house alarm suddenly started going off and had to ring the guy out- oh says he my son will come tomorrow and the alarm will burn itself out after a while and stop ringing
Well... four and half hours later.... still going strong!!!
Had to call him again... my says he I thought it would have stopped by now... it will eventually.... but its getting late says me and there are lots of young children in neighbouring houses that will be in bed and I don't want people at my door complaining
Do you have a ladder says he.... eh no I am not alarm repair man says me... oh says he I am not insured to go up ladder anyway at this time of night!!!!!
Oh my , give me strength!!! just stop the thing from ringing would you- ok says he give me twenty minutes... what for you only live round the corner!!!
Alarm now stopped..... could he not have done that first time round!!! oh and says he... don't let that thing near me... talking of my darling Misty ... well that really got my back up
Think when he comes(well his son) tomorrow to fix it I will tell him just to disconnect the darn thing as i haven't used it in years cause That Thing!!! is a better alarm and doesn't cost electricity to run it!

Never mind the recipe, this is just gorgeous hun. What a palaver with the alarm, you always seem to get as much drama in your life as the BBC! Have a great weekend
