Without Words (February DT) Working 9 to 5 (Occupations)

I would like to say Happy Monday, but it is a Monday after all, so I will tone that down a little and simply say Hello All!

But, it is the first Monday of the month, which means it is time for a new challenge at
and that always makes me happy so all is well with the world

We have a challenging challenge for you this time, and we would like your cards to follow the theme of
Working 9 to 5 (Occupations)

The Word Birds have been as awesome as ever, and you will see that even we go a bit quirky at times, so your card can feature any job, so long as it is a job that someone gets paid to do!

Here is mine:

I have used a favourite (but sadly no longer available) ElzyBells stamp
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are a mixture of Prima Craftman's Journey and Authentique
I have overstamped the bottom layer with small cars from a set of Paparmania Vintage stamps
Sentiment is Personal Impressions

We have an amazing sponsor this month for you from the lovely Elaine at

I do hope you will find time to join  us, we love seeing your work!

Hugs, Squirrel xx
