Challenges for Days - Wednesday's list

We are still looking for more people to join the great team who work together to bring you these lists of challenges - if you feel you could offer an hour once a week to help us, please leave a comment and one of the team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
 
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!
