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.
