A fairy card to cheer me up

I've just got back from the vets to get Arnie's annual cat flu injection, and the vet has told me that my 'little boy' is not actually 4 years old like we thought, but is probably more like 13 years old.  Plus, (as if shaving 9 years off his furry little life wasn't bad enough) he's got an overactive thyroid gland.  Apparently, if this is confirmed by the blood tests, this means that we need to put him on medication twice a day for the rest of his life.  My healthy 'baby boy' has turned into a poorly pensioner overnight.  I just feel that 9 years have been taken away from him, and that he's now going to be constantly poorly.  He's been getting lots of extra snuggles tonight and hasn't stopped purring since I brought him home, so at least one of us is oblivious and happy!

Anyway, to cheer me up, I've been using one of my fave new stamps which is Stamp Fairy's Patsy Tooth Fairy, although I cut off (most of) the tooth part as I just wanted a fairy.  She's so pretty and I coloured her in lilac which is one of my favourite colours (along with pink!) and used my fave nesties.  I've followed a sketch but added some extra little pearls and a sentiment. The sentiment is one of Christine's (sorry for the confusion on the earlier version of this post where I'd taken credit for it - I'd got totally confused with a Mother's day sentiment I've made for a very similar card which will be a freebie on Saturday! Oh dear, sorry Christine, and thanks for pointing it out!) and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Finally, I glittered up her wings and the cloud.

Hope you like my little Patsy Fairy.
I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting.

Such a pretty card and so beautifully coloured. Try not to fret about Arnie's health. I have a 6 year old kitty who is diabetic and he is happy as a clam even though I give him a shot each day. I am sure that your kitty has many happy years with you yet. Hugs, Carissa

Hi Netty I am so sorry but I just had to smile at the way you told the story of Arnie, it can't be good to have aged 9 years over night, poor love, I am sure he has a few good years left in him yet. I know how you feel about the age though my little JR will be 16yrs old in June and I can see that he is getting older, it scares me to death, but I know that he will be around for some time yet.
Anyway I just had to tell you how much I love your card the design and colours look gorgeous the image is beautiful I love it.
