Challenges For Days- Friday's Challenges

Hello, Carol here,

First Friday bring an updated list of monthly challenges. I hope there is a challenge which inspires you or challenges your creativity! Please note Card Making Mamas has now closed and Annabelle stamps are quickly selling at greatly reduced prices.

As always a reminder that it is worth checking the rules for each challenge we provide a guide but cannot be certain that we have not missed something.

Have some spare time? Would you like to volunteer to update the Challenges For Days posts? Please email Zoe ( and let her know! It's great fun and we have a great group of people :)
