Here comes summer

 Flip-flops, picnics, ice-cream, a jug (or two!) of Pimms, Wimbledon on the telly...
what does summer mean to you?

At Totally Papercrafts this week, our host is the lovely Sarah and
we want to see your SUMMER themed cards and projects.

Our sponsor is Meljen's Designs, who generously let the DT have some images to play with.

I paper-pieced the ice-creams and embossed them with a little dots folder that came free with a magazine. 
Can you spot my deliberate mistake?? 
This is only the second time I have embossed and I didn't realise it mattered which way up you had the folder,
so my strawberry ice-cream has negative dots!!!

Fab card, great colours and design. I still occasionally emboss the wrong way round, usually by mistake, but I think it looks good anyway :o) Lisa x
