January: Dreaming of Spring

Happy New Year Everybody !

Well 2015 is upon us, and all the Word Birds hope that you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Welcome to January at Without Words and this month the theme is:

Dreaming of Spring
(Well, we can be optimistic right?!)

It's up to you how you interpret this, but remember we are a Clean and Simple challenge, so you need to resist adding those embellishments that Santa may have brought you, and make sure you include a hand-coloured image as the main focus.

Our sponsor this month is
Crafter's Companion with a £10 Store Voucher:
Crafter's Companion

And the Word Birds have come up with some super inspiration to get you all dreaming of Spring.


That's it, but before you disappear, we need to announce the winners of the December Modern Christmas challenge:
