Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge #141-"Anything Goes"

Happy Sunday dear blogging friends!!

Well are we all caught up in the "Christmas Frenzy" yet??!!  We did our tree trimming FUN to do it with the family!!!  Looking at all the decorations collected over the years...especially the home made ones...some that are a little worse for!!  I had each one of my boys put their homemade ones on the tree...some being held together with more glue on them then my cards!! 

Okay onto today's post!!  Today we begin our last challenge of 2016 at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia AND it is SUPER EASY cause it's "Anything Goes" AND we are being sponsored by the wonderful Sandy at Live and Love Crafts!!  So come on over and celebrate the Season...let's send 2016 out in style!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I was visiting Suzi's blog one day and saw this fabulous style and thought I really needed to give it a go...thanks Suzi for the inspiration...
lots of circle matts, two silver doilies, crafting straw painted silver and embellies went into this FUN lollipop card...
the poinsettia is Tim Holtz...
set on sparkle ribbon. (Live and Love Crafts)..
flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts...
Tilda's matt is set on a bit of cheesecloth...
matt under that is framed with white ruffled ribbon. (Live and Love Crafts)..
 one of my favourite Christmas Tildas...
"It's Cold Outside Tilda" from the Waiting for Christmas 2014 collection...
coloured with my copics...
accented with White Liquid Pearl...
"Merry Christmas" ribbon is from my stash...
I used lots of layers for the poinsettia... 
love this sparkle ribbon...
I added a double star set with two rhinestones (Live and Love Crafts)...
 the back...
tag is Whimsy  which is re-moveable for personalization...
"Merry Christmas" is Hero Arts...

Oh my goodness this was SO MUCH FUN to make!!  I showed it to my Granddaughter little crafting buddy...and her eyes popped...she's SO good for my self esteem...LOL!!!

Hi my sweet friend Beth before I rave on about your gorgeous lollipop card I first want to say a sorry a sorry....a MAHOOSIVE (yeah about right) thank you from the bottom of my heart for your comment, it actually brought tears to my eyes & I even showed my family.....nearly knocking them sideways with my beaming smile lol. Thank you sweetie so incredibly much.
