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!

Our very talented and expanding Design Team (the Word Birds) (Welcome on board Joey!) 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.

Bridget is on a Sabbatical at the moment but we hope she will be back with us before too long
Sending you hugs hunny

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

The one thing that we all have problems with from time to time is the link tool going missing.  If you find that this has disappeared from the challenge, please try refreshing your page.  If the link tool still does not appear then you can link your entry via your comment.  The HTML code for linking your entry will be:
<a href="link to post"/>text to be seen</a>  
If you are still not sure, here is an example of what it should look like
<a href="http://squirrel10.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/luv-ya.html"/>here is my entry</a>
(just copy and paste the address bar from your published post)
The space between the first <a and href=, and a space after the last a>
are essential for the link to work.
