DT Blog Hop!!


We, (the DT for Magnolia-licous) have such a great blog hop for you today!  The fun, working title was  a bit long, but hre it is:
It's the "We only have 'one Life to Live' 'As the World Turns' at the 'General Hospital with the'Young and the Restless'', Featuring Dr. Edwin and Nurse Tilda!! If you arrived here from a fabulaous post by the equally fabulous Janiel (Scrappy Jan Designs), you're in the right place!  So, here they are:   My version is a Get Well kit for a friend, starting with my Nurse Tilda card. :
She is, of course, from the best place to get Magnolia images, Diana's wonderful store!  She has them all for you and with a frequent buyer program and fast shipping! 

 Then here, is the rest of my "KIT" I thought I would like to make a Dr.'s bag, but then I remembered some small tan Gable boxes that I had gotten from Ebay awhile back.  I think it 'fits the bill' as a Doctor's Bag!! I painted it black with craft paint and added a coat of shine with some satin varnish! As you can see, the DOCTOR himself is on it! Dr. Edwin is exclusive to magnolia-licious in both regular and mini sizes!
I tried to use lots of glitter (stickles) to cheer up a friend!  In the kit would be- a package of tissues, some cough drops and maybe a gift card for a great store or coffee shop when good health returns!!  Mine isn't full yet!! Dave and I were away for the weekend and got home late Saturday. I had to spend today catching up on school work for the week and getting projects done for posts!
My pinks are the R80s-just perfect!  My grays are combos of Toner grays and the Cool grays.  I used BG11 for the aqua this time.
Thanks so much for coming by to see what I have been up to!! I love reading the comments I get!!  Thank you for those!
Please check out the blog for details on how you can play before the end of the month AND then head off to see what our Amazing Angie has been up to for the hop!
Enjoy the hop and your day!
If my links don't work, please know that blogger gave me fits (again!) as I typed this on Sunday night and I will get them fixed!  ETA: I think they are all okay now at 5:00 am!!
Hugs, Cheryl

I love your get well kit that you made for your friend. Using the gable box is a brilliant idea and the your you painted/varnished it give the box just the right touch. Tilda and Edwin are superb.
