Karen's Doodles Easter Blog Hop is Here!


Welcome to the Team USA - Karen's Doodles Easter Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the very talented Kelly's blog. If you just happened here, you will want to start at the beginning with Sandy's blog. Each DT member got to choose their favorite image to use (and give away!). My problem is, I love all of Karen's images, so my favorite is always changing. But for today, I chose one of her newest - Sailor Boy for my card. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers, and think he turned out so cute!
This card is also for:
Simon Says- So Distresing
Flourishes - Picture inspiration
Papertake Weekly - open challenge
Crafty Creations - anything goes

Be sure to read all of the details of the hop below -there are so many prizes being given away, you won't want to miss any chances!

To celebrate Karen's Doodles more than 1000 Blog Followers, we are having Easter Blog Hops. Yes, I said Hops! There are 4 separate Hops going on....
For each individual hop, visit all the participating members blogs and you will find an Easter Egg with a number on it. Collect the numbers and add up the total. Be sure to leave a comment while you are visiting, as each Design Team member will be choosing one person from their comments to win the Karen's Doodles image they have used. There will be 4 Grand Prize winners, one for each blog Hop, chosen from the visitors who send in the correct total of the eggs for that particular Hop.
The winner will get their choice of 4 Karen's Doodles images.
For this hop, please send your answer to Easter Blog Hop
Wait, there is more, anyone visiting all the blogs for all 4 Hops can enter to win a
Super Grand Prize of 4 Karen's Doodles images plus an autographed
Karen's Doodles original piece of art.

Just visit all 4 Country's blog hops, collect the numbers from the eggs and send the grand total to Karen's Doodles Grand Prize The Hops will close on Saturday, April 3 at midnight EST. Winners will be announced on each Challenge blog before their weekly challenge.

Here is the hop order, in case you get lost.

Well, firstly I must say congratulation to the start of all the Karen’s Doodles Challenge Blog. Secondly I wish you well with your first Blog Hop for each Challenge Blog. You are so lucky to have such wonderful designs to work with. I would love to be in with a chance of winning anything as I make my cards to sell solely to raise funds for different charities and anything I win via challenges or blog hops go to this good cause. You have certainly made a lovely card. Best wishes, Kym xxx

So I'm getting really distracted here. I know I have a job at hand in collecting eggs and # and hopping to the right blog but I can't help checking out your pages of posts. Wowzers my eye balls can't take it all in. Your work is amazing. As I'm hopping I am also absorbing so much inspiration. I do want to say the fancy fold bride and groom card is simply the cutest! Thanks for sharing. I've gotta go hopping now.
