Cold or Allergies?

Is it possible to have a cold without a sore throat? I've feeling horrible since last night - headache, stuffy nose, watery eyes, sneezing. It feels like a bad cold, but I didn't have a sore throat so does that mean it's allergies? Everyone says that even if you don't have allergies, you're likely to develop them after a few years of moving to Austin. Feeling like this for the entire cedar season?! I really hope it is just a cold.

Since I was home all day and in no shape to do anything around the house, I made a few more cards for SCS card sketch challenges. The first is a Valentine's card for my DSS Sis using SC213 sketch as inspiration. I love this hippo stamp (another image I got through WishRAK), but I need some practice with shading. The bow ties the card together.

The second is a spring card using the SC214 sketch. I love Basic Grey papers, but I have a tendency to stash them. I just buy more and more, but feel bad using them. Well, it's a second card today using Basic Grey :) It may be a bit hard to see on the photo, but the flowers are covered with Crystal Effects to add a little more shimmer.

Agh, a whole day went by and all I did was make a few cards. I need to start feeling better soon.
