Challenges for Days - Sunday's Challenges

Here are Sunday's challenges for the coming week.  Please remember to check the individual challenge's rules to ensure your entry is eligible.  As always, if your challenge isn't listed, and you would like it to be, please leave us a comment below in the "comments" box.

We recently welcomed two new faces to the team and having their help certainly made things a lot easier round here.   Unfortunately Esther is having to step down for personal reasons and we are all very sad about it but understand her reasons and wish her well.  They say when one door closes another opens, Maria who used to look after this Sunday list is returning which will allow me to start covering the Saturday list.

We would love to expand the team spreading the load (An hour or so a week) for all of us. If you would like to join us as a List Manager you would be very welcome, let me know zoechaos@icloud.com
