I have been quite productive these few days, so here are some more cards for X'mas. I am going to take a break this weekend, but I will be back soon! =)

I've never made X'mas cards, but I think my first attempts turned out quite ok. Hope you like them as much as I do!
I got this idea from the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. But because my cutting skills aren't very good yet, so I used glitter glue to 'decorate' the edges.

A month later, I am back. I've been gone because of my thesis, but I am so glad to be back. I spent the whole of yesterday making cards! Haha...
Here are 2 of them.
The card stock came all the way from Phoenix, AZ. Thanks a bunch, YH! =)

Someone recently asked why I would spend time making cards and sending them out. Most of the time, I made them for special occasions like birthday and graduation. Every so often though, I made cards just because I wanted to.
Just because I want to send a smile on its way to a friend or a family. =)

This is one of the first cards I made and it obviously has a lot of room for improvement! For one, the colour combination is rather awful because I didn't have much at my disposal back then. It went to the first friend I made when I started college. We recently got back in touch, though we haven't met in a long long time! Like family, old friends are people who will always have a place in our hearts no matter how far apart we are from each other.
Let's see, when is the best time during the year to visit Canada? Any idea?
And I just might drop by Phoenix, AZ too, YH! =)

A good friend recently flew to the UK to begin her graduate studies. She has thought hard and long before taking the big step to follow her heart. Sometimes, all we need is just that little bit of courage to...
After all, the future depends on what we do in the present (M. Gandhi).
Have a great time in the UK, WP! =)

These are some of the birthday cards I have made so far. I hope they can inspire you in some ways. I am still rather amateur in card-making, so my cards are pretty simple in designs and techniques, but it's the thought that counts nonetheless.

Welcome to Heartmade Cards!
Instead of starting with the very first card I have made, I decided to begin this blog with the latest.
This card carries a lot of meaning because it is dedicated to my late mother who was a breast cancer warrior. It is fitting also because October is the Breast Cancer Awareness month. It doesn't have the symbolic pink ribbon on it because I don't have any, and pink isn't exactly my favourite colour. But the remembrance is there nonetheless.
This card is also made for one of the bravest breast cancer warriors I know. She is currently recovering from her recent relapse, and I hope this will cheer her on.
A tribute to all the breast cancer warriors!
