Challenges for Days - Monday List

Now Sandra has left we will take turns updating the Monday list but would love another lovely person to join us.   You know there are just 5 lovely ladies who help me with theses lists and they do not know how much I appreciate all they do, or how much I would love our little band to grow at least sufficiently for this Monday list to have regular cover.  Details on the 'Join our happy band' page.  You know there really is not a lot to it, this list has just taken me about half an hour to update.

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.
