The Roman poet Horace is attributed with saying that a picture is a poem without words. Well, that's what we like to think too, although some words will be allowed (what's a card without the occasional sentiment). Welcome to the Without Words Challenge where we want you to create clean and simple cards, focusing on the image without the distractions of too many embellishments. We hope you enjoy this challenge as much as we do!

JANUARY: Baby, It's Cold Outside

Hello Artists!  Welcome to a New Year and to another monthly challenge where we like to play WITHOUT WORDS - we have been thrilled to see you enjoying our fun challenges during 2012, and we hope that you will enjoy spending 2013 with us too!

This month, which is JANUARY, our challenge is BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE - we are looking for cards featuring SNOW, lots and lots of lovely snow.  But remember, keep your card CAS please!

And our sponsor for the first challenge of 2013 is the fabulous QUIXOTIC PAPERIE with a £10 store voucher - thank you Elaine!  If you have never shopped with Elaine before, do pop over and see her - she stocks the most delicious items and her service is always excellent.

We are looking forward to seeing what you make of this one and viewing your fabulous creations.  Please remember to follow our CAS definition and the theme of this months challenge for your entry to be a valid one.

Our very talented Design Team (the Magnificent Seven) have created their usual high standard of magic to inspire you.  An awful lot of time is spent by the team in creating these mini works of art so don't forget that it would be nice if you have time to visit their individual blogs and share the love.

And just before we go, the Winner and Top 3 for last month have been posted on our Without Words Stars of the Month page - don't forget to pop over and check it out, it could be you!

The most important thing to remember?  Relax and have fun with colour!

The one thing that we all have problems with from time to time is the link tool going missing.  If you find that this has disappeared from the challenge, please try refreshing your page.  If the link tool still does not appear then you can link your entry via your comment.  The HTML code for linking your entry will be:
<a href="link to post"/>text to be seen</a>  
If you are still not sure, here is an example of what it should look like
<a href="http://squirrel10.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/luv-ya.html"/>here is my entry</a>
(just copy and paste the address bar from your published post)
The space between the first <a and href=, and a space after the last a>
are essential for the link to work.
