Revisting the 10th hole

One of my favourite tea houses (apart from Dotty's of course) is The 10th Hole at Southsea. My daughter lives nearby and we recently enjoyed another visit.
 It's a gorgeous retro building

and serves tea in real teapots with bottles of milk.

 After lunch we shared a piece of clotted cream and strawberry cake....mmm

Later Daisy had her sun cream put on  for fun in the swing park.

 We also enjoyed a walk in the gorgeous rose gardens....the scent on the air was glorious.

 and we enjoyed a walk by the sea.
My card today features cake in a big way! I went for a one layer CAS style to show off this large fun stamp. The stamp is by Stamping Bella. I added some shading with pencils and white highlights. The sentiment is LOTV

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Noor anything goes
Penny Black and More anything goes with a stamp
Little Clair's anything goes
Happy Little Stamper anything goes with a die
The ribbon girl 2/3 any image

Thanks for visiting today and for the sweet comments you leave. Remember that I have an exciting giveaway I am offering soon....come back next Tuesday and all will be revealed.
Back soon,

Bye for now,

  12. Fabulous card and beautifully put together. Love your photos, those tea rooms look like a great visit, will have to remember them for next time I am down that way xxx

  13. That clotted cream cake sounds delicious. It would be great to have a small slice right now since I've got a cup of tea to drink. Oh well! What a lovely day out and I'm sure the roses were lovely! I found some pretty purple flowers while we were at the coast the past couple days. Some all over a hillside!!! As always, your cards are lovely! Take care~Becky L.
