:: The born of 2nd Mother's Day Card ::

I've designed another D.I.Y Mother's Card for competition, with the "Sweet Summer Feel" as the theme. I've utilized the bear-bear (which i get from my friend's house warming), some fake flowers (stolen from my mom's plant *hahahha*), foam papers, thick papers, nice-background paper (purchase from Popular).

I think this version of card give me more smoother-feel as it looks simple and cute as compare to 1st version (click here if you forgotten how it looks).

And another thing i like for this is the hanging "MUM", originally the idea comes when i see the hanging lamp at my hall. So, i just make the bending "BELOVED" text, to hang the "MUM" text/ Creative isn't it? *hahahha*

Inside view (still in progress)

I've completed the front card and still designing to complete the inner card outlook. I'm so happy to hear from mom or friends saying that the cards are nice. As i've put effort, time and money to design those cards, to impress people and hope to impress the judges as well. *hahahhah*

While chatting with mom last night on this card design, i was asking her :

Elaine : "Mom, i think i join the wrong profession, i should go into Art Designing or whatever designing"
Mom : "hmmmmmmmm" , you got the "sam si (heart) to design la. Not like Kah Chun they all."

But personally, i likes to design. I can burn the mid-night oil just to try to complete the card. Aiii~~~~ I should learn designing related course, instead of computer. But without te knowledgeof computer, i might not be able to design in such manner (by utilization photoshop to touch up photo, to design background image, to surf internet for more ideas, etc etc).

Anyway, feel free to drop comments on my 2nd "baby". *hehhehehe*

  1. I also think i have the same problem like you.. joined the wrong profession! even though my work should be more to numbers & analysis, i actually like to make my excel file so nice, like to design forms, automation of files etc. wouldn't feel boring/headache doing such things huh?? i think we heritage dad's & mum's attributes - dont you notice they also like to design their own creations - from home furniture arrangement, decoration to self-designed tables and cabinets?? ;)

    Ya ya ya ya ya~~~~ Not reaizing it until you tell me now! Yes, they do!They like alot in designing and customizing things. So, mom and dad founf their prefered job, by working out something with the glasses, aluminium and wood they have. But how about us??
    How are we going to continue our life with probably wrong profession for the rest of our life??? aii~~~, is it too late for us to change now?is it too late for us to change our profession now? can we continue like this for the rest of our life?
    I admit i like designing, but i'm wondering will i feel the same like what i feel now, after i really actually physically join designing?
