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!

MAY: Brings Forth May Flowers (Floral)

Hello Artists!  Welcome to another monthly challenge where we like to play WITHOUT WORDS - we have been thrilled to see you enjoying our fun challenges so much, and we hope that you will enjoy this one too!
Before we get on to the new challenge, our Winner and Top 3 from April are

Please contact me (Squirrel) by email

and our Top 3 (in no particular order)

This month, which is MAY, our challenge is Brings Forth May Flowers (well, we had Little April Showers last time) so we are going floral!

And joining us amongst the blossom is our sponsor QUIXOTIC PAPERIE with a fabulous voucher for you to spend in store (I wanna win it!!)

sponsor for January, May & September

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.  We've had too many of those darned embellishments sneaking in - leave 'em alone!

Our very talented Design Team (the Word Birds) 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.

On Sabbatical

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