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!

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.
