Last week was one of those weeks when everything at work was an emergency. Sometimes we have days where it seems like all we have happening are basic things like vaccines, nail clips, spays, neuters, dentals, etc. Then there's weeks like last week when nothing is basic - GDVs, broken limbs, pancreatitis, bite wounds, RTAs, etc. Just when we thought we were getting under control something else would turn up. The vets and nurses were going straight through from 7:30am - 7pm not even stopping for lunch breaks. It was nuts. And it was heartbreaking as we lost several battles. I was totally fried by Friday night and more than a little depressed. I know that we can't save everything and you have to have a level of stoicism for this work but sometimes it wears you down. Needless to say my mojo was NOjo this weekend. Didn't get any crafting done at all. Just tidied the house, hung out with Luis and the hounds and spent Sunday doing my best impersonation of a sloth. When I woke up this morning I was still feeling a bit blah but I was determined to get that mojo kick started. It was a struggle but I pushed through and got 3 cards made. Nothing amazing or wildly imaginative but I got something accomplished so I'm feeling a lot better.
So this card is for the Just Add Ink colour challenge - a sweet spring colour palette. Unfortunately the gale force winds outside are not exactly spring-like today but I found this lovely image from Unity that definitely is. :)
