Lilac Tilda .......and some awards!

Good morning friends!

I hope you're all having a wonderful day - we've woken up to blue skies and sunshine today so it should be a fun day for everyone! Today I have a card for you that covers a couple of challenges. The sketch is from Stamp with Fun - I've rotated it so it would work with my image of Tilda. And over on A Spoonfull of Sugar they have the theme 'Floral Fantasy' and I thought this card fit the bill perfectly!
I coloured Tilda using my copics and added 'Fuschia' flower soft to her basket of lilacs. The panel behind her is cuttlebug embossed using the Floral Fantasy folder. I used lace and lilac ric rac down the left side of the card and threaded the circle sentiment through (Just Rite stamp). The flowers are Prima Hydrangeas and I found these cute little lilac roses in my stash. I sprayed Tattered Angels pearl Glimmer Mist over them but it's not easy to see in the picture.
I have received these beautiful awards (sorry I've been slack in posting them). The Circle of Friends award was received from my beautiful blogging friend Linda, thanks Linda, it means a lot! And the lovely Kreative Blogger award is from one of my favourite commenters on my blog, Christine. Please be sure to check out their blogs if you haven't already, they both do such beautiful work!

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
