Chick Challenge #25

I don't want to say this TOO loudly...but I do believe that spring is in the air again!  At least it feels that way where I live!  And with that warmer weather, we also welcome in some of our spring holidays, such as Easter and Mother's Day.  We are SO lucky that {ippity} has such fabulous stamps that are perfect for both holidays (and every day in between!)  I am so happy to share with you a stunning Mother's Day card by this week's

(challenge week of April 5th-11th)

Maria Levine
Fairfield, CT

We are so lucky to have Maria sponsoring us for a second time!  In case you are new to the Chick Challenge, however, here is a little bit about Maria:  Hey there!  It's Maria Levine here this week as your {ippity} chick sponsor this week.  I am a SAHM to twins a boy and girl who just turned 6.  I have been stamping for about 12 years now and have loved every minute of it.  I was thrilled to have found Unity a few years back and even more thrilled when they started {ippity}.  I'm proud to say that I am an {ippity} chick and always proud to support all things {ippity} and Unity!  I would love to be your {ippity} chick!  Come follow me on my blog: Ria Creations  and join my Facebook fan page.

Fantastic paper choices. Love the embellished bead/pearl in the center. Awesome fussy cutting, too!
