This little light of mine...

I'm going to let it shine!  I love that song :)  This card was inspired by a challenge over in the CAS group at The Outlawz.  My sweet Sistah, Cheri, came up with it and I had the most fun with it.  The challenge is to create a CAS card or project that features an item that shines.  You may think at first glance that I chose stars that shine in the sky.  Very true, but my "shine" is their smiles.  Nothing shines to me more than a warm, kindhearted smile :D  So here we are...a wreath full of smiles...for you, my friends.  Careful...these stars hug too ;)

Pryn, did you know your name is Orty? Neither did I, but my hand was in the wrong place and that's what I typed. Just thought you would want to know. Or not.
Hey, Girlfriend, this is utterly A.DOR.A.BLE!!! I love that wreath of stars, especially with the smiles! Just another fabulous Pryn CAS card. You are the master! :^)
Hugs, Penny
P.S. I cannot make a CAS card to save my life. Wellll...maybe to save my life. But I'd have to be falling out of an airplane, or into an active volcano, or...ah, nevermind.

Pryn, the statement you made about smiles is oh so true. I smile and do wonders in everyone's daily life. Anyway I love that you shared this card with us. I think I may have to CAS it because I love it and then meaning so much. I wish you a very happy weekend. Sending you a great big smile and a gigantic hug!

Pryn, I was looking for your TTCRD card, but this one is equally gorgeous. I am so happy you are up and about, and I missed you when you where recouping. So glad you are well enough to craft again :)S
