"First" Mothers Day card

Hi and hope everyone is well and keeping warm-well third day of Spring and we have had snow,hailstone,cold wind and rain!!!
I would like you advice on this card please,so feel free to comment.I have made this card for my 9mth old grandson Jozef to give to his Mum for her first Mothers Day.I have left sentiment off until a decision is made,I made the front of the card with his pic on,and the second image for the inside BUT my daughter thinks I should put the image on the front and pic on the inside----SO--what do you think??Papers are Daydream from Heidi Grace,buttons and ribbon from stash and my favourite die of the moment lol-cardstock from Papermill Direct and image from Mos digital pencil coloured with promarkers.

Oh it's gorgeous Carol and so is little Jozef! As it's from him I think the photo on the front is a beautiful idea and would stick with that, the image front one could be from you? Both are beautiful and "mum" will absolutely love it. I hope the weather warms up for you soon, much love XOX Lucy

Angela said...

Well both cards are gorgeous but the photo of Jozef on the front would be my choice. If would look amazing in a photo frame after the day x

Carol, I like the picture in the front, that way she can place it on a table for display or even put it in a frame for the wall. Just a wonderful idea for Mother's Day. Thanks for joining us at OSAAT. :D

Ingrid Mason said...

First Mother's Days are extra special and Carol, you have certainly created a most special 1st Mother's Day card for Jozef's Mummy. Oh what a beautiful photograph of your adorable Grandson who's probably just beginning to get into little boy's mischief. I have such a big smile as I open this card to see the delightful image of the sorts of things Jozef may well get up to very soon ..... let's hope his Mummy receives lots of handpicked bouquets in the years to come.

Carol, you have created such a gorgeous card here ... I know that I'd be putting it into a lovely frame so that it can be kept on display for a very long time.

Hope all goes well for you dear friend. Love Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥

Sammy said...

Just gorgeous! I'm sure she'll love getting a card with her handsome chap on the front! Thanks for playing along with the current CraftyHands challenge. Sammy-x

Vicky F. AKA Crafting Vicky said...

ahhhh that's soooo adorable! Well it depends if you are using both image I would have put the picture inside to say that it's from him and the image on the front... but if it's from you then the picture on the card is just perfect :D

Thanks for joining our fortnightly challenge here at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge. Hope you will join us next time co-owner Crafting Vicky.
