Challenges for Days - Wednesday's Challenges

We would LOVE some more help with keeping the challenge lists up to date, and currently have a Team Call out - please see our post HERE for details of how to apply. 

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!
