Challenges For Days - BY DATE 1st August 2023 List 1

This is the list where JFF challenges or challenges not offering digital art prizes will be found.  For the remainder of the By Date lists, things will remain the same with another list on the 8th, covering new challenges that started between the 2nd and the 8th of the month, another on the 15th covering those that started between the 9th and 15th, and a final one on or around the 22nd of the month covering any that post later in the month. This means that every challenge you see in each listing will be current and live. 

To see challenges posted on other dates, please check the blog archive on the right or click the appropriate label, also on the right.  The challenges on this list run by Date, not Day.  As with all our lists, we have tried to check the rules of each challenge (key in sidebar) but we strongly urge you to check for yourself.  Our lists are growing as we come across more challenges.  If you know of one we have not listed yet, please tell us about it either by leaving the info in a message below or send us an email to CFDinfo12@gmail.com.  Thank you to those who are finding us and adding challenges to our lists.  Have fun Crafting.  Thank you so much for joining us!  -- Challenges for Days Team

We're currently looking to recruit a couple of volunteers - do you have an hour or so to spare each week? If so please reach out by e-mailing us at the link above and thank you!
