Challenges For Days - Saturday challenges

Please not that this is just a guide, be sure to visit each site to ensure you have all the rules for each challenge

Please always double check the challenge site for rules and more information. Thank you; every Design Team we know will appreciate it.

Do you know of a challenge that isn't on our list? Please comment with a link and let us know or send us an email at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com

TEAM CALL - we need some help

The only requirement is that you must be on Facebook

There are a core group of us who regularly maintain these lists; we also have a few floaters for if and when they are needed. If one of us is taken ill or cannot update their list/s we have a sign up sheet for when it is known about ahead of time, or one of us will fin in, in the case of an emergency. We would also like to add some more content if we can get enough people

Some of these lists take just  half an hour whilst others may take a little longer but they are fun to do as well as a great way to keep in touch with the challenges going on around the World. We're also a very friendly group of people and would welcome other people to the team. Ideally, we would like to recruit 3 people who could each take a list and update it every week.

All that is required is a computer with internet access and, if you are reading this, then you do! Can you spare perhaps an hour each week to visit the sites listed and update the challenge details? This is a blogger site and very easy to use.
We have a "Secret" Facebook group where we share information about challenges as well as our crafty (and other) news.
If more people volunteer then they will be welcomed and perhaps we can start to expand the site and share the news and other things

If you would like to help or know more then please drop me a line at our e-mail: ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com with TEAM CALL in the subject line. Please include a little information about yourself and why you think you would like to join our CFD family

Thank you
Hope everyone has a great Saturday! - Cheryl
