Happy Birthday Maria!

Today is a very special day - it's my wonderful friend and "boss", Maria's birthday!  Maria is the incredible  talent behind Kitchen Sink Stamps.  I am constantly amazed at the beautiful stamps she comes up with and have had the pleasure of being on the KSS Crew from the very beginning.  Maria is just the most kind, considerate and just plain nicest person to know and takes such great care of the Crew!

Because of all that, I am thrilled to take part in a special Birthday Blog Hop the KSS Crew has organized for her.  I haven't used one of my favorite sets in quite a while and this seemed like a good opportunity - 3 Step Hydrangeas is such a beautiful set!  I used today's Saturday Sketch from The Sweet Stop again (my official SSS59 post will be posted at 7:00 am) since it's a such a great one!

Please take a few minutes to visit the rest of the Crew and see what loveliness they have made for Maria and we'd love you to stop by Maria's blog and leave her some birthday love - she totally deserves it!!

Happy, Happy Birthday Maria!!
