Challenges for Days- Monday Challenges

Hello Crafters,

Below you'll find all the Monday Challenges we know of and follow. Please do check that your entry qualifies for any challenge you enter, we might have missed a significant factor in our guide.

If you would like to tell us about a challenge, or change of rules please leave a comment below so we can check your site and grab the details.

This will be maybe my last list for Challenges for Days. I had a fab time maintaining this list. It's good fun and the team is doing such a great job. Thanks to the team and all the followers. It was a pleasure.

If you'd like to help the team and have time to take over a list, please get in touch with Zoe.
