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!

September: Happy Anniversary

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!

This month, which is SEPTEMBER, we have been running for a whole year, so appropriately our challenge is HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.

Your card doesn't have to be for a wedding anniversary, it can be the anniversary of any event you choose, but just be sure to tell us in your posts what it is.

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 sponsor for September is QUIXOTIC PAPERIE with a £10 voucher

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.

Busy with the harvest

And just before we go, the Winner and Top 3 for last month are:
Winner of the Make It Crafty $15 voucher
