Without Words First Challenge

This is it, and I can't begin to tell you how nervous I am - today is the first challenge from WITHOUT WORDS!  If you have not checked out the challenge yet, now is your chance, it would be lovely to see you there.


The ethos of Without Words is a clean and simple card, minimal or no embellishments, with the focus on well coloured images.  CAS isn't that scary, honestly, once you get into it, it really is quite liberating!

Anyhoo, the first challenge theme is SEPTEMBER: AUTUMN - A season of warm, rich colours and mellow fruitfulness.

The design team (oh how I have been blessed to have such a talented team) have created the most amazing inspiration for you - it would be lovely if you have a chance if you could let them know they are appreciated. The challenge would not have reached this point without their support - what a great bunch of gals they are!

Here is my DT card:


I have used Mushroom House from Make It Crafty, painted in my trusty Distress Inks (ReInkers) and teamed the image in a very simple layout with some Basic Grey papers.  Voila.

The challenge will run for a whole month, the closing time and date being 6.00pm (UK time) on 30 September so you have plenty of time to join in the colour fun.

Hugs, Sxx

Hey Squirrel what's to be nervous about. This new challenge is a great idea and I'm sure it'll be a great success. I'll need to have a think about it as I'm kinda in Christmas mode at the moment lol! I'm hoping to join in though.
