Well, happy 4th day of the new year!! Today is the first day I have really felt like my old self. So, when I would accomplish a task, I would make a card. These are what I got done today. Note, however, I did get more than two tasks done!

The card on the left has a cupid stamp I purchased on Etsy I believe. I will have to look that up. The scalloped base it is mounted on is a vintage piece of paper from some old college book I bought at a local flea market. I colored the Cupid using my Copics markers and glitter markers. The sentiment is from A Muse!! The ribbon, believe it or not, is some I have had around for years and I thought it just worked on this card.

The second card I couldn't resist making. Those of you who know me have heard me talk often about my Dad and his cattle. I bought this stamp because of those cattle. I don't know if it was meant to be a hereford, but it sure looks a lot like one. We have polled herefords (means our cattle do not have the horns). Anyway, I colored the bull to match a hereford's hide using Koh-I-Noor woodless colour pencils. The sentiment matched the stamp perfectly. It is from A Muse, of course! The bull stamp was purchased from Cowtown Stamps (thanks to Debbie H. for telling me about this site!)

Back to work for me tomorrow. We have court and the last time I checked we had 12 sentencings. Therefore, I fully expect to be in court ALL day! I have enjoyed my time off, despite being sick. Like Betty mentioned on her blog, I am kind of looking forward to having some structure back, but I am sure I will be muttering about work by Tuesday!

Off to do some more computer work - like list these cards on Etsy. Thanks for stopping by!
