This Little Light of Mine, I'm Gonna Let it Shine

Finally it's my turn to tell you about the awesome new Verve stamps!! *wink* I have to tell you...the quality of the clear photopolymer stamps is amazing! This month's release has been so fun to prepare for because these stamps are so much fun to play with. Only 5 more days till you can order them all!!
I was at my LSS the other day and saw these Prima Crystals and immediately thought of this set. I am so thrilled that Julee designed a whole set of Polka Dot stars...love them. I also love that the stars work so well with Stampin Up's new large star punch. It makes my layering soooo much easier.
The weather here has been cold and yucky so I thought I'd bring a bit of Spring to our lives. Could you use some? There's no better color for Spring than my dearly departed Cool Caribbean. I brought her out to use with Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery, and finally added a pop of Basic Black.
This sentiment means so much to me...it reminds me of a quote from Akeelah and the Bee where she quotes Marianne Williamson. Are yall ready for total greatness??
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
My sister sent this to me, so when I saw this stamp, I fell in love. I hope you do too!!

I've never seen that movie -- I'm going to have to watch it. I really like Marianne W. a bunch and I'm very excited about her daily show now on Oprah & Friends (or as Carter sings it, "Diva and Friends!" I don't know how we started doing that everytime that comes on, but now it's very common to hear someone in my house singing "Anything can happen, with Diva and Friends!" But I digres...)

Another thing that sentiment reminds me of -- that song "Shine" which was originally done by Collective Soul, but then Dolly Parton re-made it so gorgeously. It's one of my favorite songs. Have you ever heard it? You MUST download it! I'll even buy it for ya!

Oh, yeah, great card!!! :)
