Good morning and welcome to Challenge #55 at IKEsWORLD CHALLENGES  - WHAT's THE WEATHER ?
We are celebrating GROUNDHOG DAY, which will be Tuesday 2nd FEBRUARY 2016.
According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.
Modern customs of the holiday involve celebrations where early morning festivals are held to watch the groundhog emerging from its burrow.
We would like to see anything about the weather, Spring, Groundhogs etc. on your creations. You may make anything you like and you can use any images. If you use an IKEsART image you will be entered twice into the Vote.
