SSiC Challenge #146 "Use Something New!"

Good Morning!
A blessed Sunday to you all!
Today begins the 146th challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!
The challenge this week is being hosted by:
Lovely Linda
and the Bible verse she chose as our theme verse is:

NEW commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:34-35

and Linda wants us to use something NEW in our project!
This can be a new technique, a new product...anything NEW to you!
For an explaination of why she chose this theme and some devotional thoughts on these verses you can go to either her blog: or the main challenge blog at SSiC.

And as always we have another generous sponsor who is offering a prize to one randomly chosen participant! Our sponsor this week is:
Digital Delights by Louby Loo
Check out their site/store! They are having a great SALE right now (through the 4th!)

My card this week is for a good friend whose birthday was she already has this card as you read my blog! Her name is Cindy and she actually designed the NEW dies I used for this card.
The die set is called "Card Creator" which is now being produced and sold by Spellbinders and is part of their Nestabilities line. There are 2 sets that match and each set has rectangles that are exactly proportioned for A2 cards, each rectangle is 1/4" smaller so they "nest" perfectly. But when you combine the 2 sets they are 1/8" different and nest creating a delicate 1/8" border. There are also 3 fancy die sets that match: one ribbon threader and two fancy borders. I have used both the "Card Creator A2 - Matting Basics A&B" sets and the "Card Creator - Fancy Ribbon Threader" set. On the inside of the card I used another of Cindy's newly designed dies which are called simply "ATC" (for now!) because that is the size they are. All of these sets are very new and were just featured on the Spellbinders bloghop last week. (Well, I'm not sure that the ATC's are even out yet!) If you are interested you can go to Cindy's store website and take a look:  (do a search for Card Creator or click on Spellbinders dies)
