Try Something New for TioT

Hello, I've made my first Christmas card this year!  Well, the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is 'Try Something New' - now that could be new stash/new technique - whatever as long as it's new and you tell us what the 'new' is.
I've used one of the Tim Holtz Holiday Knits rubber stamps, I picked them up at a local craft fair for £8 and they were new, such a bargain.  I've also used a new Tim Holtz Thinlits Blueprint Snowman, thanks Diane for letting me use it first.  His 'broom' is a new technique for me - Pamellia our very talented teamie did a little tutorial (probably last year) on making winter greens with a fringed die and this is my 'take' thanks Pamellia.
So lots of 'new' on my card, I need to think about making the rest now.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous 'new' things to show you, so please pop over to the main blog.
I'm sure you all have lots of 'new stuff' so why not show us and join in with this challenge.
I'm entering the following challenges:
  Holly Jolly Christmas - Use a Die
 
Have a great week,
Avril xx
