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 atjanesgrapevine@yahoo.co.uk


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