friends/designers....

You will NEED to make sure you make a note
of the closing dates and start dates

so you wont miss challenge deadlines...

Sooooo to kick the fun off and get you into the swing we are running the next 
challenge in this way and this is how the challenges will be from now onwards...


The challenges will start the 1st Wednesday of the month!

And will end on the last day of the month (at 1pm GMT).
