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: It's a Celebration

There's a party goin' on right here 
A celebration to last throughout the years 
So bring your good times and your laughter too 
We're gonna celebrate your party with you 
Celebrate!  Good Times!  Come on! 
Kool & The Gang - Celebration

Hello everyone, and welcome to September!  This month we are celebrating at WITHOUT WORDS as it is out second anniversary!  So, this is your invitation to come and join us as this month's theme is (as if you hadn't guessed already) It's A Celebration!

We're not restricting to you one particular type of celebration, it could be for any occasion that brings joy or demands a party to mark the event.  As you will see from the Word Birds inspiration cards, we have celebrated many things this month.

Of course I am going to remind you about the rules, the very essence of this challenge is to encourage you to colour and to show that off with a CAS design, so if you need to refresh your memory the Rules are in our sidebar.  Just leave those pesky embellishments alone!

We are thrilled to have a sponsor with us who made one appearance last year and has now agreed to be with us more often, so a big round of applause please for MAKE IT CRAFTY

Make it Crafty

Blimey, I bet you could hear the party poppers from there!

OK, so that leaves us with just one thing to do and that is share the news of the Winner and Top 3 from our August challenge.

Winner of the Bunny Zoe voucher is
Kat W @ Paper Firefly

and our magnificent Top 3 are
Julie B @ Crafted By Jules
Dorte @ Hos Dorte
Faye @ Stampin Fluffnstuff

OK, time for you to get the balloons blown up, the party streamers flying, lots of confetti and cake, and get celebrating!  Looking forward to seeing what you make for us.

Hugs to all
Squirrel & The Word Birds
