Rubies for July

Thanks to everyone who joined in with Keryn's "Ice and Snow" challenge last week - as always your cards were wonderful and full of inspiration. This week is the first Friday of the new month so we'll be returning to our year-long Birthstones theme for this week's dare.
Before that though we are waving Goodbye to Andrea and Kaz who've been sitting on our "Guest Designer Sofa" for the last few weeks - we've loved having you on the team and we hope you'll come back again for another month soon. Thank you both for being such wonderful inspiration for us all.

We have a new Guest Designer to introduce to you this week, and we're thrilled that she's agreed to play along with us this month. We'd like you to welcome
Ania makes the most fabulous cards and other projects so please don't miss the chance to visit her blog.

The birthstone for July is the
Ruby
Rubies are associated with devotion, integrity, courage, happiness and said to promote vitality, confidence and strength.
It's long been believed that precious stones have healing properties related to them. The Ruby's healing powers are in connection to blood problems and infection, it's considered helpful in increasing positive thought patterns.
Rubies are also thought to enhance energy, generosity and to bring prosperity and success.

Plenty there to get you thinking! - but of course you could simply decide to use beautiful Ruby Red as the predominant colour on your card. It's all up to you, we'd just like you to use Rubies as your inspiration this week and we're all looking forward to seeing your cards.

As usual, leave a comment/link and we'll come and visit to see your creations

Here's what the team have made this week
