100th Challenge Blog Hop at The Pixie Cottage!!!!

It's a very special challenge at ThE PixiE  CottagE this week as we are celebrating our 100th challenge!

To mark this special occasion we are having an "Anything Goes Christmas" challenge and also a blog hop for some very special prizes!

You should have come to me from Davi Long Reid and if not, then please go back to ThE PixiE  CottagE so that you don't miss a spot on the hop.

You'll need to collect letters from all the blogs on the hop to be in with a chance of winning.

Also, you must leave a comment at all the blogs as each one is giving away a PixiE CottagE Digital Image so plenty of prizes to be had.  The winner from my blog will be chosen from the comments, and will win a digital image of their choice!

Finally, when you get back to the ThE PixiE CottagE leave your name and link to your blog in the Inlinkz box for a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to Michelle's Scrapbooking!  We'd love for you to enter with a Christmas card/project but if you are only entering the blog hop, please add BH after your name. Only one "Blog Hop Only" entry per person.

So now you just need to leave me a comment and then hop along to Tanya Johnson to carry on with the fun!

For this 100th challenge, I made this little banner. 

I cut the backdrops and letters with my Cricut, embossed each backdrop with a Sizzix folder then edged each one with a gold DecoColor pen.  The letters were cut from a thick gold metallic cardstock.  I threaded each little pennant onto thin gold wire with a sparkly bead between each one.   I colored the cute "Not Even a Mouse" Pixie Cottage image with Copics, cut it out and mounted it on Spellbinders Holly Motifs.  I then suspended it with fine wire from the Merry banner.   The poinsettias were made with Spellbinders Poinsettia Creations, with sparkly beads added to the centers.  Below are close ups of the image and one of the poinsettias.

Stamps:  Not Even a Mouse, by The Pixie Cottage.
Paper:  The Paper Studio, not sure who made the gold CS.
Ink: DecoColor pen.
Accessories:  Cricut, Spellbinders Holly Motifs and Poinsettia Creations, Stickles, wire, beads, Sizzix Snow Globe EF.
