Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week, but before I do I'd like to thank you all for joining in with Jo's Christmas in June dare As always your cards are fabulous.

As time is flying and we are in a new month so it's also time to say a big thank you and Goodbye to Jozza our June Guest Designer, wasn't her work just fabulous. We have a new Guest Designer with us for July. I'd like you to welcome Beverley a very talented cardmaker. I think you'll enjoy her creations.

In New Zealand at the moment it's winter and cold and dark. No snow here as temperatures don't get that low but still low enough that that's all anyone thinks about and anyone talks about. So this dare should be easy for those in the colder climes of the Southern Hemisphere but in the North it may be a little trickier. Use images, use colour, use embellishments that make you feel cold and remind you of winter.

As always we love to see your cards so post them on your blog and leave us a comment so we can come over and admire them. If you don't have a blog EMail them to us to be placed in our gallery.
