Life's Ups and Downs

Good morning everyone!
Today's card I made for one of my bestest buddies, Stacey.
Her feline crafting companion, Cody,  is in a rough way and while you could say, "It's just a cat", he's far more than that to those who know him.
 He's one of those cat's with attitude.
 You know the type?
 He has the color markings (black and white) that make it look like he's sneering at you and saying to himself,  "what a hopeless idiot". lol
Anyway! I thought Stacey could use some cheering up so I chose my favorite cheer up colors:
yellow and orange. :-)
(You'll probably see alot of that this winter. I HATE gray days)
I am using a digi from Nicecrane Designs which you can purchase here
A close up:

And the sentiment which I thought up all by myself! lol

By the way, Ignacio over at Nicecrane designs has a special surprise going on:

Dorcas, your card is really nice and I'm sure she will love it. I really like the sentiment you thought up, too. What font did you use? Hugs, dj

Thank You! This card is special. The bright colors are very cheery to me and the sentiment is sweet. We have gone through a lot of ups and downs together, this one is particularly rough as he is my baby! Some of his tude is showing up today which is a good sign. Thanks again, I love it!

Great card!
As I just read, Stacey felt cheered up and so you did a good job!
Like those little details as e.g. the paper-clip, which make a card twice as nice!

Ahhh, what a lovely thoughtful thing to do. Beautiful bright cheer-up card, glad it's worked. Like Uli, I love the little ribbon/paperclip embellie, and the sentiment is sweet. Hugs lin Goodness, did I nearly forget your colouring lol, great job again, and really nice sketch too.

Hi Dorcas. Yep, those are cheery colours all right and Stacey was bound to love the kind thought as well as the gorgeous card. Ignacio will probably be rather pleased too, I would have thought. Lovely card.
