Without Words November Challenge

Keep it simple
No need for bling
if that's how you like it
then come
join in!!!
Without Words Challenge

This month the theme is:

Whizz Bang
(think vibrant colours of fireworks)

OK, for those non Brits out there who might not know why we have fireworks
November 5th
"Bonfire Night"

We celebrate the fact that in 1605 a man by the name of Guy Fawkes
tried and failed to blow up the Houses of Parliament!!

We even have a little rhyme about it

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason
why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot

Well I think that is enough history for today, don't you,
so here is my creation:
......and not a firework in sight....just bright zingy colours!!!
(and sparkle courtesy of glitter glue) 
Thought I would have some fun & gave Dani lacy tights!!
Dani with Gifts by Mo Manning
Eskimo Kisses paper pad by Basic Grey
Stickles glue
Ribbon from stash
Now please remember the rules:

Put away your doilies, flowers and bling
it has to be
Clean and simple
if you want to win!
(sentiments are allowed)

Please post your entries HERE

.......as for me, well I thought I might enter Dani in a couple of challenges too

Hi Jane! Your coloring is always beyond perfection, if I may say so. Dani looks gorgeous in her wintry outfit and the colors are perfect, just like the fireworks:)
Thanks for remembering us about Guy Fawkes; seems like yesterday we learnt about that in my English class. I even have a pic of the page in my mind:)
Oh, and thank you for supporting Mo's challenges; it's always a pleasure to have you around:)
Hugs, Iulia

Hi Jane, oh wow beautiful colouring and a stunning image. Great colour choices, so bright and cheerful.

Thanks for joining in with us this week at Sweet Stampin.


PS - My daughter (whose 5) came home from school today and said that they'd been learning about some people I might not know about - Guy Fawkes being one of them! She was quite surprised that I knew who he was!!

Fabulous coloring Jane! I always have trouble with white but I really like how you did her cuffs and collar. Awesome Mo image too. :-) Glad to have you playing along with us at Mo's this week! Hugs!

paper fun said...

Beautiful card. Your coloring is stunning.

I had not heard the poem or the reason of the firworks, so your history lesson was very interesting for me.

Thanks for joining us at One Stop Craft Challenge.

Breath taking colouring Jane, I love the purples and the reds and the depth you've given the image is amazing you really know how to bring a character to life,

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

Awesome colouring as always. Maybe I can hire your cute little shopper to do some of my own Christmas shopping. But given that she is 'across the pond' it might be a little far for her to come help me out. Oh well, I guess I'm stuck doing it myself.
