100th CHALLENGE CELEBRATION AND 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 HEIDI'S BLOG 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.

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 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 SHANNA'S BLOG to carry on with the fun!

Btw, have you gueSSed my letter yet?!?  :)

My creation today follows both the sketch and the challenge theme of Anything Christmas.  I have chosen Winter Door by Sandra Hammer which can be found at Michelle's Scrapbooking!  I have colored the image with Copics and Fiskars glitter gel pens and added Aleene's glitter snow, then I masked the image with vellum and airbrused the background with my Copics.  I am not the greatest at airbrushing yet, but I think it tured out pretty cool.  I cut image out with Lifestyle Crafts dies, sentiment from Unity with Nesties, poinsetta paper with Martha Stewart punch and glitter paper background with Cheery Lynn die.  DP is Basic Grey and CS is Coredinations.  Sure hope you like it and enjoy the hop!!

Just no words! The card looks very simple, unadorned! But the paper is taken as a basis, the picture itself, they give some New Year's heat! Yes, it was the heat! The impression you open the door, and there compacted blanket in his chair reading the Christmas story!
