Challenge # 2 & Some Winners!!

Wow! On behalf of the design team here at Karen's Doodles Kids and the Doodle Queen herself, I would like to extend a very special thank you to everyone that participated in our very first challenge. You guys rocked the cards. So before we get on to the next challenge how about some winners? Please remember that all winners were chosen at random, so in no particular order here are this weeks winners. Please contact me for your images. :)

1st Place goes to: Rachel
2nd Place goes to: Neeky
3rd Place goes to: Alina
Thank you again everyone for particpating, we hope to see you all again this time around!
So for the second challenge our very own Junior DT member Emily (age5) has drawn a sketch for us to play with. The only other condition is that you use one of Karen's Doodles. Our challenges run for 2 weeks so there is plenty of time for you to come and play along with us. Please remember that everyone is welcome. We'd love to see all the kids play along, but mom's/grandma's/aunt's/sister's etc are all welcome too. We want to see everyone come play with us!!

Okay so here's Emily's Sketch:
And here is Emily's take on her Sketch:

And Emily's Mom Dee:

And finally my card:

Unfortunately Carlie and Jana were unable to play along with us this week because Carlie has a few fractured toes so they've been dealing with that. We can't wait to have them back for the next challenge.

Okay... what are you waiting for? Off you go... create and have fun. Interpret the sketch however you see fit, as long as we can still see the basic idea there. You have until April 9th to play along! :)

Welcome to Karen's Doodles Kids Challenge Blog!

Have you seen all the wonderful challenge blogs popping up this week from Karen's Doodles?
There's one for the United States,
one for the United Kingdom,
one for Scandinavia,
one for the Netherlands -

and now - one for the KIDS who love to craft with their MOMS!

Karen, the Queen Doodler, just LOVES kids!  You may have noticed that many of her images are inspired by kids she knows or has met online, or they are requests from Moms who would love to see their sweethearts in a digi stamp!

So, Karen wanted to start a special blog with KIDS as the inspiration!

So, if you are a Mom, an Aunt, a Grandma or just a friend who loves to craft with a KID - come join us!  There will be fun challenges, prizes and much, much more!!
