ABC1 ~ New to You ~

Hi everyone and welcome to our first 'ABC' All Beautiful Cards blog challenge.  Thank you for the wonderful response to my first design team call and to our new followers.  Be sure to spread the word and help our blog challenge grow!  And with that said, I'd like to present our very first challenge!  

~New to You~

Since our blog challenge is new to you, I thought it was only fitting that we create cards using something 'New to You'.  Please state what the 'new to you' item(s) are within your post.

It can be a stamp you just traded for, a new ink pad, ribbon your friend gave you, or even some paper that you bought long ago and haven't opened yet.  It doesn't have to be brand new, but it should be 'New to You' and something that you've never used before.  You can even create a card using a new technique.

Remember cards only!

Don't have a blog?  No problem, we will visit your online gallery, simply use the keywords ABC1 for this challenge.

Here are a few samples from our new design team to get you started!  Be sure to leave a comment for them or better yet visit their blogs!

Jeanette - New to her item - gift card holder card & 2 very old SU stamp sets
 Inside of card
