Tiddly Inks challenge #203.....Independence

Papers- Key to my Heart.

It's time for another fun challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and it's time to celebrate the today!!! the Tiddly Inkers want you to think.....


 So think images that make you feel independent,empowered and positive.

 (**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 
but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

I decided to go with the independence of moving home since one of my best friends is going through this empowering journey of finding the right home right now. Knowing what is right and wrong for your family life is such an important step to take. Going through your belongings and packing and remembering those positive and happy memories from your old home is emotional and magic all at the same time so I couldn't think of a better way to showcase this challenge than using the Cute as a Bug clear stamp set.

I also wanted to include a key element to my make ( letting go of your house keys and all that) so I used the free paper from the Key to my Heart image.

Now for the exciting bit.....I have one Cute as a Bug clear stamp set from Christy to give away to one random commentor who comments on this blog post...eeeeeeeeeeeep!!! I am so excited to be able to give this set away so huge Thank you's to Christy for sending me it to be able to do this.

I used the random Little Mo app to draw the winner !! he he!!
Congratulations Cheri!

Please pop me an email with your addy deets so we can get your
stamp sent to you xxx

Huge hugs and thank you for popping in, Lou xxxx


  1. Cute card. Love the colors and the charm you added. This is a cute image. To think of leaving the home we've had for almost 35 years would be scary yet fun. One day, that will be me and my husband driving to a new house. Sigh..........one day!

  2. Absolutely adorable!! Love anything you make!!! And thanks Christy and Lou for a chance to win!

  3. This is so adorable Lou! Loved the way you added the stamped key onto the background of swirls and flowers with actual keys on strings to tie in with your theme. Also I am so loving the neutral colours with the pop of red. Renee

  4. Awesome card, Lou! I like how you used the shabby chic background, heart and key touches with the thoroughly modern, fun digi stamp!!

  5. You are right Lou, it does tug at your heart as you hand over the Keys to your old home.

  6. I don't think you'd be able to send me the stamps if I were to win as I'm in the UK but, that's fine as I really just want to tell you how fab the card is! I love how you've made the image pop right off the card! My style to a tee�� xxx

    1. I'm in the UK Lesley and I'll post it anywhere to the winner so don't worry about that xxx

  7. This is so cute Lou!! What a very creative way to celebrate Independence!! It definitely helped get my creativity going. Best wishes to your friend during this stressful, but exciting time.

  8. Love your card, fabulous as usual. Thanks for the chance to win :)

  9. This is a lovely card. The image is fantastic, and can be used for several things. I love the heart and the key for the new door, perfect embellishments for this sentiment.

  10. Duh! I'm a nitwit! My alias is also Lou so it's a good job I don't live close to you and your friend Lou or life might get too confusing ! Love your cards and your blog and I hope you're doing ok healthwise �� X
