The challenge at Inkspirations this week is a colour challenge. I've had extra work shifts this week so haven't had much time in the Craft Cave but managed to whip this up this afternoon. I've had this Hero Arts stamp for a while but this is the first time I've inked it up. I love those birdies and I have a few other ideas for them that I'll hopefully get to sooner rather than later!
A few interesting moments at work today. We have a specialist from Boston who comes down a few times a year to do big orthopaedic surgeries. (His name is Dr. Nick Trout and if you like animals and you like books then you should check out his book "Tell Me Where It Hurts"). Anyway a lady happened to turn up with a terrapin that had been run over by a car and the bottom half of his shell was split in half. Since Dr. Trout was here he agreed to repair it. The vet from the local aquarium and zoo came by to help get the little guy under anaethetic and then Dr. Trout, using pliers, heavy gage wire and Krazy Glue, patched him up! Apparently it was his first terrapin surgery and despite taking ages to wake up the little guy came through just fine.
I also met a cat named Morris and thought I'd share a picture of him - all 22lbs of him! There's a lot of Morris to love. Amanda, the nurse in the picture with him, is barely a hundred pounds and she looks lost behind him! LOL! Never a dull moment at Endsmeet Animal Hospital!
