Portrait Of A Lady

Today is my Mother’s birthday so decided to post the card I made for her. I may take my features and hair colour from my father’s side of the family but personality traits, my Mum and I are so alike, we can read each other like a book. I am incredibly close to both my parents but today is Mum’s turn for praise and heroine worship LOL.

Happy Birthday Mum – I am one lucky daughter to have such a woman as my Mum.

On seeing this set of stamps (there are various sizes of the same stamp in the set and also words) my Mum came to mind as the stamp could not be more perfect. When the novel by Tracey Chevalier was published, we both got caught up in the story. We are both avid readers and are fortunate that most of the time we share the same taste in books. So that is the reason for Girl With A Pearl Earring.

    I long for that kind of relationship with my other but sadly not to be. any way I love this card I watched the film only a few months ago I loved it. A great story I am sure the book is better (they usually are) and I also wish your mother a wonderful B’Day too

    Love Dawn xx
