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!

JULY: Cute n Fluffy

Hello Worders, and welcome to a new challenge at WITHOUT WORDS

It's July, and our theme this time is CUTE N FLUFFY, which doesn't really need an explanation.

We would ask that you refresh your memory in respect of the challenge rules as we hate having to ignore entries that don't fit the criteria.  We are seeing far too many embellishments creeping in, and images that have not been hand coloured.

Right, now you have done that, let us tell you who this month's sponsor is, and it's
CRAFTER'S COMPANION with a £10 store voucher

Before we go on to show you the Word Birds awesome inspiration, we have some news for you which we feel very sad about - this is the last month that Word Bird Donna will be with us, so we would like to take this opportunity to officially thank Donna for all her beautiful work created for this challenge.  We will miss you sweetie!
