Summer birthday

It's the longest day today, so 'high summer' - what a joke! Although, to be fair, following the rain and the dull day, the sun is actually out now. When thoughts turn to summer we tend to think of hot days and ice creams to cool us down, hence this card.

This is based on Sketches by Carly 58:

All papers used are from my offcuts box - another one for  Pixie's crafty snippets 25  - and, no, Di, my snippets pile doesn't seem to be any less - perhaps it's because I keep adding to it - lol! The sentiment panel is DCWV and all the other papers are Basic Grey cupcake.
