Mother's day at Dotty's Teahouse

Dotty's is getting ready to celebrate Mother's day over the weekend with a special afternoon tea. The event has already sold out, which is not surprising as there is nothing quite like tea and cake with your Mum is there?
I took these photos when I nipped in to do my stock check, last week, before the customers arrived.
This will be a real hive of activity
and my Mother's day cards have been set up on their own special shelf (below right, top shelf)  next to the shelves that I normally sell from. 
Here are some of my cards, there are more in the window. (Edit; Since I took this photo some  cards from this photo have been sold)

Rebecca, Dotty's owner really has made this the most delightful place to spend a few hours. If you are ever near Carshalton High Street in Surrey do pop in.
My card today is another of my Mother's day makes using the Visible Image Mother definition stamps and words from written in the stars zodiac collection.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Creative Moments 1/3  anything goes
Time Out 1/3 Bold
Addicted to stamps and more 1/3 make your mark my background was created with distress inks.
Alphabet challenge 3/3 Y for your choice

  9. Beautiful creation. Lovely layout and sentiment. Thanks for joining the Crafting With An Attitude challenge.

  10. Beautiful card, that heart die cut is fabulous! Love the splattery background and that quote is amazing! Dotty's looks like such a lovely spot to go and sit for coffee and a sweet treat. We don't have little shops like that here, just franchise stores like Tim Horton's, so impersonal and lacking character. How cool to see a shelf full of your cards, love it! hugs :)

  11. What a lovely card! Perfect for Mothering Sunday. Thanks for joining us at ATSM.
