Sleepless Nights

Hi there!
I hope you are well .... I have been suffering with foot problems these last few days and had two sleepless nights which meant a visit to the doctor this morning and more blood tests ... I am one of these people who seem to suffer from too much uric acid ... and some years ago was hospitalised with kidney stones (really painful!) and now the crystals are depositing in my toe causing arthritis ... (I so love this ageing process!) 
I made a card for the challenge at Waltzing Mouse yesterday and I guess being tired ... rushing to get to club (not wanting to let them down ... even though standing was painful)  I didn't post it before the closing time ... so I will share it anyway ... 

This was the sketch and this is my card


but I think it also fit the challenge of "Pastels and Ribbon" at Delightful Challenges 


This  card is mostly digital from various designers ... but a pretty happy card don't you think?
I hope you have a great day 

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Ros, I love this new style on your card! I love all the colors and the pennant banner. The birds look just like they do sitting on the electric lines. How cute! I hope your body feels better soon. I know about age and arthritis! fortunately for me it is not in my hands! Have a great evening!

Such a (s)(t)weet little card Ros! Truly hope you'll be feeling much better soon, I know kidney problems can be very painful, I saw my dad too often in pain, too. Take care, Ira

Such a sweet and adorable creation, it is funny that 2 days ago I just made a card that looks similar to this one, except it is round, that is for my CCCB card next week, you'll see later!
Sorry to hear about your pain, my brother suffered from kidney stones, I know how much he suffered, take care!
You are so nice and kind that you still go to your thursday club night, you are such a sweet soul! Hope you feel better soon! Sending hugs your way.......

Oh I do hope you get to sort out your crystals. No one should suffer so much pain and you soldiered on magnanimously.
I really love your card with the birds and three-dimensional bunting.
Thanks for your sweet comment. 'We aim to please'

OUCH! Sounds horribly painful. I sure hope your little toes are feeling better soon.

This is a darling card. The birds on top of the flags is so stinkin' cute. :)

What a dear sweet card. I just love the little birdies sitting on the wire! Thank you for your kind words and I'm so glad that you find some SU inspiration when you visit ... kudo's to your "SU supplier"! I know just how you feel - I have suffered from gout in the past. I was floored when they told me! Believe it or not ... for me it was too much oatmeal! I stopped that habit and haven't had a problem since, but I still carry my little green pills in my purse .. you can never be too sure. Bless you and I hope you are feeling better soon!

A different style but as gorgeous as always. I love the birds on a "wire" and your banner...sigh....
I hope you are feeling a bit better and have less pain. Or even better; no pain at all.
Hopefully you will have less pain so there is a chance to enjoy the weekend and a good night sleep...
Take care....

Hope you're feeling better now. I've missed coming to see your lovely creations. I've been away from blogland. I'm still crafting just no time for blogging. Not enough hours in my day. Or maybe I'm just desorganized ;) Get well soon. Hugs from Mexico.
