Please Read

Please be aware that we use images of an adult nature and anyone visiting this blog needs to be aware of this. Please also note that we are not here to offend or upset anyone we just felt that these types of images get less exposure than the cutesy images and wanted to help the talented artists get their images out there. We understand and respect that this may not be to everyone's taste. For those of you that do love them Have fun with us!

Challenge #10 Anything Goes & Blog Closing

Hello Everyone

Welcome to a new challenge here at Dark 'n' Daring Challenges.  We are so pleased that you can join us.

Before we get to the winners and the new challenge I need to tell you that this will be our last challenge.  We would like to thank the wonderful sponsors that have supported us here at Dark 'n Daring.  We just do not get the entry numbers which is very upsetting for us here.  Around FB Groups and Blogland I am constantly hearing that there are not enough Dark Challenges.  Well We have been here for the last 10 Months and we struggle nearly every month for entries!  Maybe its the Dark blog in general although we do accept cute dark and still don't get the entries.  We are very sorry to close this blog but it is just not worth all the hard effort that the team puts into this.  They create fabulous projects each month and there is not alot of reward when there are hardly any entries.  We would like to thank those of you that do play along with us.  The blog will remain here for everyone to see and maybe if the Dark Side picks up then we will re-open it in the future.  I personally would like to Thank the DT both past and present for their wonderful inspiration each month.

Please note that our we use some Images of an Adult Nature so please be aware of this before you scroll down any further!

Our theme is always Anything Goes as long as its Dark/Sexy/Goth etc.  Cute images are allowed as long as its Cute Dark/Cute Sexy.
