Challenges for Days - Wednesday's Challenges

Before I start, can I draw your attention to the post pinned to the top of our home page  - we are losing one of our team members and urgently need somebody new to replace her. Please do consider joining our lovely friendly team, it will only take about an hour of your time each week and your contribution will help not only us, but the crafters all over the world who consult our listings!
Right, back to the normal stuff!
Here is the up to date Wednesday list for everyone.   As always remember to check your entry to a challenge qualifies, we might have missed any changes in the rules.   If you do spot something or have information to share with please feel free to leave us a comment.

Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!
