If you've never been on a blog hop before, it starts with a post that tells you about the hop and gives you a link to the next stop. Sometimes you are visiting someone's blog and find out the are a participant in a blog hop. You become intrigued and want to follow the hop from the start, so they also have a link to where you can start from the beginning. Be sure to leave a comment to let them know you stopped by. Sometimes they have a drawing from all the comments for a prize. One way to explain a blog hop is that it's like a blog tour. Sort of like a tour of homes that is so popular during the Holidays. Usually you're seeing blogs you have never seen before (at least one or two) and many times they are supporting a good cause.
The Cards that Care hop has many blog stops and each will be posting a handmade Christmas card. It's a good way to see a wide variety of cards and techniques. I am looking forward to spending my spare time this weekend visiting the many sites, working on Christmas Cards for the drive and working. Yes, I am working every day this weekend, but I don't want to miss this. If you want to go on the blog hop start here.
