Verve February Release Spotlight Hops Day 2

Welcome to the 2nd day of our February 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps So Fluttery, Shining Star, and the Beautiful Plain Jane. Each of the release team Divas below (including 4 brand new talented designers) has posted her first look at these new stamps today. As you hop through the list below, you just might see some super sneaky peeks of new coordinating dies, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, February 22.
Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. Woohoo! Let's get started...
I have a couple cards to share today, and the first one showcases a couple butterflies from So Fluttery and the Beautiful Plain Jane-


I pulled out some old BG papers and some Hawaiian Shores and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. Don't you love those butterflies? They coordinate with the Flutterby die. I've also used the heart scallop trim die from the new Scalloped Trim Trio die set. I seriously LOVE these border dies and know you'll love them too!!

Next up is a card using stamps from the new and amazing Shining Star set-


Sigh...I love his set, it's so adorable:) I love all the stars and the sentiments! And the FONTS! Oh gosh, there is nothing to NOT love about this set:) I cut a banner out with the new Banner Bundle die set and stamped the matching banner stamp from Remember This. The stars are from the new Starry die set, and there are about 6 different sized stars! Such a fun little die:) And you can see more of the Scalloped Trim Trio die set, this time the star border! The little flags on the bottom are from the news Flag It's die set. That's a whole lot of new dies and gorgeous stamps, wouldn't you say? You are in for a real treat when you see the sets as a whole, SO GORGEOUS!

Okay, now it's time to send you on over to Andrea's blog!

First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
