OK!! It's time for the "We have only 'One Life to Live' 'As the World Turns' at 'General Hospital' with the 'Young and the Restless' that are 'All My Children' featuring Nurse Tilda and Doctor Edwin" blog hop!!

LMBO!!! How is THAT for a title of a blog hop??? Hi everyone!! Sure hope you've had a wonderful weekend!! I know I sure did! And now it's time for our monthly blog hop at Magnolia-licious!! This month we're featuring the fabulous and exclusive Doctor Edwin! He's so dang cute and he's only avaialble from Diana at Magnolia-licious! I'm sure my Design Team Sista's have conjured up some GORGEOUS creations for your viewing pleasure today! If you've arrived here from the awesomely talented Suzanne, then you're on the right track. If not, you'll want to go back to Magnolia-licious Highlites so you don't miss a single thing! Now I'll be honest....I struggled with this challenge (which is kind of funny since I was the one that suggested it! LOL!!). I wanted to do something a little different, and just couldn't come up with any ideas that I liked. So I was perusing through the Scor-Pal blog and saw the cutest tissue box cover and that's when it hit me. Tissue box holder....Doctor Edwin....a perfect match!!! So that's what I did! First, HERE'S the one that inspired me, and then HERE are the directions.  This is my version.



I LOVE these tissue box covers and it was really easy to make. I used #000 Doctor Edwin, and #307 Nurse Tilda from The Winner Takes It All collection. Both of these images are also available in the mini version. Magnolia-licious has the best selection of Magnolia images!! Couple that with awesome service and  the fabulous discounts Diana gives, and you've got a combination that can't be beat!!!  I also used #3 Tilda Lace Doohickey Cutting Die.


Doctor Edwin and Nurse Tilda were stamped onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copic markers. I then fussy cut them out and popped them up on a base of kraft cardstock. That is then popped up onto  a scalloped frame cut with Nesties. The polka dot paper is an old digi paper that I got before I started being smart and saving it under the name of the maker. All I know is it's called Lil' Red and I apologize to the creator of this wonderful set of digital papers. I wish I could find her again cause I loved her papers and would buy more. So if anyone has any info, I would greatly appreciate your help.


I used the Cricut Expression and Elegant Edges to make the cut out for the tissues on the top. The strip across the sides of the lid were done by printing Bless you onto Bazzill cardstock, cutting the strips, and then popping them up from the base. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are cut using #18 Rose Leaf, another Magnolia Doohickey Cutting Die. And I've added the "artsy fartsy" view.


So that concludes my post for today. Now it's time for you to hop over to see what the Magnificent Mindy created for you! Thanks so much for joining us in our hop today! I hope you join the fun for a chance to win a wonderful prize from Diana at Magnolia-licious! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!! Hugs!!

Sandy said...

Wonderful project Sharon - everything looks as if it was done to perfection. I love the color red. Now, I must be honest, Tilda is holding a hypodermic needle for a horse and the look on Edwin's face is so sad. I think he must have lost his patient! Ah-chew - I need to go find a tissue.
