Challenges for Days - Wednesday Challenges

You are invited to join the team here, managing one day takes at most an hour to update the list.  You will be joining a very friendly international team.  To find out more why not check out Join the Team page or drop Zoe an email, zoechaos@icloud.com

Here is the up to date Wednesday list for everyone.   As always remember to check your entry to a challenge qualifies, we might have missed any changes in the rules.   If you do spot something or have information to share with please feel free to leave us a comment.

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!
