Challenges For Days - Friday challenge

Kathy 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: CFDinfo11@gmail.com


We want to thank you for your continued support! 
Please help spread the word about our little challenge blog :)
We find ourselves in need of volunteers. Do you have regular access to a computer (preferably on facebook too) and an hour or so to spare one day a week? If the answer is yes then do drop us an e-mail with your details, to: CFDinfo11@gmail.com as soon as possible and thanks in advance
