I’m in the spotlight …

Today is my spotlight post at One Crazy Stamper (OCS). I’m sharing 2 cards for my post.

The 1st card is a card I made for my son, well actually I might give it to my daughter and make him a superhero one – I’ll figure it out later since it’s everybody’s birthday at my house. I mean every single one of them – I am knee deep in birthday celebration at this time of the year. My DH just celebrated his b’day not too long ago, my little Emma’s turning 2 next week, my affectionate Shawn is celebrating his birthday in 3 weeks after that and my own 2 days after Shawn’s.

Imagine the number of cakes we have in the fridge at this time of the year!! For these couple of weeks only, we eat cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And let’s not talk about presents!

For some reason, all our friend’s birthdays are around the same time too (5 parties in the last 3 weeks) and I use birthday cards more than any other cards at this time of the year. So I make birthday cards whenever I can. Here is card #1:

The little elephant image (Celebrate Big) is from Whimsy Stamps Crissy Armstrong collection and can be found at OCS. He is colored with Copic Markers. Designer paper is from Fancy Pants design.

Card #2, I’m using it for celebrating another relationship, Grandparent’s Day (which is the day after Labor Day):

Sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations; Designer papers are from Crate Paper and the flower is actually handmade and here is a tutorial. You can also find the stamp from OCS. I really enjoyed making these cards for OCS – they carry the kind of stamps I love and I love designing for a team whose products I actually enjoy using – makes designing very easy.

Have a happy November, even if it’s not your birthday!
