#HelpSusie.com initiative and some life updates

Hi Everyone,

It's been absolutely ages since my last post, and it's also been a very long while since I last crafted - I missed it hugely! I am glad to be back now, and hopefully within the next few weeks I'll manage to get back to a crafty and blogging routine. 

I have a few life updates for you on my YouTube channel, and those of you who follow me on Instagram might have had a few insights into my move to Helsinki & my "adventures" with the moving company. Long story short, everything is more less in order now - our stuff from Dublin finally arrived (with a month of a delay!), the movers did damage a few of my crafty supplies but thankfully agreed to reimburse me for the damages through an insurance claim (phew!), and now it's time to start a proper life here... that also includes crafting - woohoo! 

Here's the first card that I put together in my new crafty space - I have not made it from scratch, I cheated and used a panel I already made back in Dublin, but since I was in a need for a card quickly, that seemed like the best option! :o) And speaking of the need for a card - I strongly encourage you to go over to DiDeDi Crafty Corner's YouTube channel, and checking out her #HelpSusie.com initiative. This card is already on its way to Susie, I hope she'll like it.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
A Gem of a challenge - Female birthday

I sincerely hope that I'll manage to craft more & blog more in the nearest future. It's become a bit complicated since our little baba came to this world - wish me luck! :o)
