I was inspired by this sentiment in the new Peace on Earth set as it comes from my most favourite Christmas Hymn. Every time I hear it, I get shivers and tears in my eyes.  I picked up some super sparkly glitter cardstock this past weekend and made a blinged out star embellishment to compliment the sentiment.

How would YOU like to win this set?  We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We'll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured stamps. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.  Have fun on the hop!
