Magnolia or Matilda?

I received this adorable cake paper from Mary Ann over at A Very Mary Design. I didn't want to cover it up, so I stamped my Magnolia/MAtilda image and then cut her out. (What is the name of this stamp? Does anyone know? ) I colored her in with my Copics. I chose green for her dress because there was so much green and brown in the background paper. While I was coloring it I couldn't help thinking of the song, "If I had a million dollars." There is a line in there that says, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a new dress, but not a green one cuz that's cruel!" ........Guess ya had to be there! LOL! OK moving on......The ribbon is from Making Memories. I cut the oval out using my Coluzzle. I added some glitter to the cake because glitter makes everything better! : )

Cortney's appt went fine yesterday. They X-rayed her hips because she has "subluxed" hips. They just like to make sure they haven't dislocated. Her muscles are tightening since she is growing like a weed! At some point she may need surgery to lengthen her muscles. In the meantime we were given night splints. We also met with the wheelchair guy. He admitted that he screwed up and is ordering all new parts to make her chair right. Unfortunately, this could take a couple of months. Nothing I do can ever be right the first time apparently! Thanks for checking in and leaving comments! It really does brighten my day!!!!!

That paper is great, and your coloring on the image is wonderful. Glad things went OK yesterday and that the wheelchair will be corrected, sorry that it will take so long.

Just love the makes a fabulous background!
The stamp is from Magnolia, her name is Tilda.

I'm glad everything went well, night splints will keep her muscles from growing in the wrong direction, so it sure will help!
Hope the chair comes soon!
