Challenges for Days - Sunday List

Please always double check the challenge site for rules and more information. Thank you.  Every Design Team we know will appreciate it.

Do you know of a challenge that isn't on our list? Please comment with a link and let us know or send us an email at

⇨ Right now we have no openings, BUT we will gladly keep your email for when we inevitably do need help, so feel free to email us! We'd love to have some help on Challenges for Days! We can always use helpers as we would like to expand what our list offers so, if you have a bit of time to spare, please check out the details on the Join our Happy Band page and drop us an email !  

Please bear with us - this is a difficult time of year to work on the lists; challenges take breaks but neglect to post it, they change the days or weeks they post challenges and some continue their break long after the date they said they'd return.  SO PLEASEif you see an error on any of our lists, please drop us a note in the comments section. 
Thank you!!
