July Challenge - Under the Weather......

Time for another challenge. This will run until the 31st July, and as usual, there will be two prizes, one for my favourite card of the month, and another for one picked by random number generator from all the entries. Thanks to Letraset, each will get a set of five promarkers of their choice from the Ultra fine range - they come with five ultra fine nibs in the pack...... Ultra fine nibs just clip onto your Promarkers and turn them into precise writing pens, or they are perfect for colouring tiny details on your images

So what's the challenge? I want to see some weather themed cards, it seems as though the weather is haywire all over the world, the east coast of the USA is suffering extreme heat, the UK is having the heaviest rainfall for 100 years.....so let's see some weather cards. They can be sunshine summery images, bikinis and deckchairs, or  rain, umbrellas and wellies,  get a start on your Christmas cards, let's see some snow.....you get the idea. Here's mine to start you off - I found this image buried in a pile of paper, I have no idea who it's by, or when I coloured it, I think it was a good while ago........ :)

Not many rules. You can enter as often as you like, but new cards made for the challenge please, no back linking to older posts on your blogs. Please be sure to link back to Going Buggy in your blog post. Put your link via your blog or photobucket or similar into Mr Linky below. If you can't do this, email me your photo as a last resort and I will put it on here for you (I had a lot of trouble doing this last month, so if you can find a way of doing it I would really do the happy dance.., but I don't want anyone to feel excluded from this challenge)

Good luck, I can't wait to see what you all come up with, and I hope that a few of you can hop around each others blogs to see the entries as well

    Would love to take part in this Challenge, really hope to give it a go as I haven't done one before & love my Promarkers. Also such a great theme what with all this weird weather were all having at the mo.

  5. It's so cold and wet in western Washington. The temperature has only been in the 60's all summer, brrrr! Your card is very appropriate for here.

  6. I love those cards, En! I like entering your challenges because I have a whole month to enter and I can enter as many times as I can (I mean to enter more than once A month but haven't done so hahaha!). I went to Michaels last week trying to find those Promarkers you mentioned but I guess they haven't received them at my local M's yet :(. Guess I'll stick with Prismacolor pencils for now.

  7. Wish I could have entered this, but as I don't have a blog, looks as if I can't.
    Good luck all...

  9. Love the image on that card Enfys.
