Challenges For Days - Friday's Challenges

Carol here with this week's Friday's Challenges. 
We try to make sure that our listings are up to date but mistakes do happen. Please check that your entry qualifies for any challenge you enter. It is frustrating for all concerned when it's not right, perhaps for something as simple as entering too many challenges. If you do spot an error, please leave a comment telling us; it would be such a help.
We also welcome emails at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com 

We want to thank you for your continued support! 
Please help spread the word about our little challenge blog :)

 As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  



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!
