Copic Colour Challenge #37!

Trying so hard to find my mojo and start getting organised but the going is rather slow I am afraid! It's a catch 22 situation, I have a week off work...but have my two little (well not so little) monsters at home!LOL
Anyhow, I did actually manage to get a card made for the Copic Colour Challenge this week!
The colours are;
and here's what I came up with.
So grab your Copics and head on over to check out the challenge!

Dottie's World- Child's Play!

It was Lou's turn to set the challenge over on Dottie's World this week;
"Well Hellooooo!!!!!!! Louise here with your challenge for this week.
I have been busy working on a new download collection, it's a boy themed set....but it's not quite ready yet. I have a sneaky preview for you on my example card but that will have to do for now....sorry ♥
Anyway, in keeping with the child theme.... "This week on Dottie's World I want to see you setting free the child in you. Make a card or something else for a child (using a Charmed Download please) . Let your imagination run wild!"

You MUST pop over and have a look because if the first sneak peak is anything to go by, it's going to be an absolutely fab collection.
Anyway, I struggled with this but eventually came up with a card (sorry it's late girls!) I am not at all happy with it, I think the colours don't help at all, not my usual "safe" colours!

Dottie goes Autumnal!

Still finding it really really hard to find my mojo, but in general life is becoming a little bit "smoother!" Mum is improving bit by bit although the anti-rejection meds are having a few side effects her progress is steady.
Amelia seems to have settled into her new school better than we could ever have expected, her reading has made an amazing improvement and her confidence and attitude to learning has made a fantastic turn!
Jack sat his 11+ yesterday so we aren't trying to cram practice papers and extra work into out agenda fingers crossed, I will soon find my mojo lurking beneath the mess on my craft desk!
I have made a mojo-less card for this week's Dottie World challenge. LOVED working with these colours, although the warm Autumnal colours are some of my favs in general I rarely work with them. Hope you play along too!

Going Round in Circles with Dottie's World!

It was my turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World this week and still suffering with a complete lack of energy and mojo this is what I came up with;

Hi everyone it's Adele here! My life is all over the place at the moment, rushing around but not really achieving anything. When I realised it was my turn to set the challenge, this was the first thing that came into my poor little head!

Going round in circles!

Use this for inspiration in any way you like, circles on you papers, card shape, apertures, whatever takes your fancy but make sure you include a Charmed Download!

Copic Colour Challenge

Well life is calmer....for now. Things have thankfully settled down a bit fir the run up to Jack's 11+, which is two weeks today. I am hopeful that he will spend a bit of time with me going through a few maths and verbal reasoning questions...but HOPEFUL is the key word there. Jack seems to think that 2 weeks is a lifetime away!LOL

Anyway,I have had a card on my desk all week waiting to be completed, so today in between washing and tidying and sorting loads of flash cards for Amelia's speech & language work...I actually finished it and took a couple of piccies!

This card was made for this week's challenge over on the Copic Colour Challenge Blog.

This weeks colours are;

Not a comfortable combination for me I will happily admit, but still trying to find my mojo really doesn't help matters. Fingers crossed, things will continue to calm down a bit and my mojo will come flooding back...just in time for the Christmas rush...EEEK.
