Hopping Around at Karen's Doodles!

Happy Monday morning Crafty Bloglanders.  Hope all is well, wherever you are.  I'm posting for Karen's Doodles today as well as Thursday because the DT is hosting a blog hop today along with the weekly challenge. How exciting!

AND, just to make this hop pop, we've an additional twist.  Each team member will be 'displaying' a letter - visit each team member's blog and collect the letters. Once you have them all, unscramble them to reveal the 2 word phrase then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer. A grand prize winner of a $20 gift certificate will be chosen from all the correct answers, in addition to our 3 weekly challenge winners. We will also be awarding random prizes of digi images chosen from the people who comment on each member's blog.

Right, so on with the hop.  If you arrived here from Lori's blog you are on the right track. If not, start at the Challenge blog for a list of the DT members in hop order.

This week's challenge is a sketch:

Great layout, eh?  Here's what I did with it:

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Herbert Christmas'

Papers: October Afternoon, 'Very Merry' collection

Isn't this a super image?  I love Herbert and I like the idea of him walking down the street delivering parcels! This wonderful paper from October Afternoon is perfect for the job! 

I coloured Herbert with my Copics, adding a little shading with my Prismas.  I hate colouring with red (an occupational hazard at this time of year, though) - it's so unforgiving!  Still, not too many boo-boos on this one.  I love Herberts shiny red boots.

SO, it's time for you to continue hOpping and next is Tanja, who I'm certain will have something wOnderful for you. (Did you find the letter yet?)

Happy crafting.
