the CLASSroom {can be fun!}

It's true (even though you'd be hard pressed to get most kids to agree with you -lol)...hanging out in the CLASSroom can be fun! As my dad always says, Who'd a thunk it? Well, I have proof!

Last week I received an email from Ellen, of Ellen Hutson's online store fame, informing me that I'd won some free stamps (woo hoo!!). The ironic thing here is that when Ellen had posted the winners to the contest (guessing the images of some of the new stamps to be released), I read it and didn't even recognize that my post was among the winners. lol Anyway, take a look at what I received!: That's right...not one, not two, but THREE! of Karen Lockhart's brand spankin' NEW images (Aren't they cute!?!)! It's no secret that I adore Lockhart stamps, but unfortunately I don't use them as often as I should. I think they're buried behind a lot of my other stamping supplies so they tend to be out of sight when I'm looking for inspiration. I think I'm gonna have to change that ASAP though, because I certainly don't want them to feel unloved! And now that I've got these cuties to add to my collection, I'm definitely going to have to make it a priority to get some of them inky! ;)

If you've never been to the CLASSroom, you don't know what you're missing. There are all sorts of wonderful tutorials and projects to get your creative juices flowing, presented by Ellen herself and several other wonderfully talented designers (many of whom I'm sure you're familiar with). Ellen also has a monthly newsletter that you can sign up for. If you check out the {many -lol} links I've provided for you here, you'll see that she's got all sorts of ways to inspire you (of course, she and her gang are equally likely to enable you to purchase more supplies along the way too -lol)...and if you frequent the CLASSroom, some day you may just find yourself unexpectedly winning some cute stamps. ;)

And, no, this wasn't a paid endorsement for Ellen's fabulous online store, nor am I affiliated with it in any way...I was just so excited to have won these darling stamps and am such a big fan of Ellen and love that she is so dedicated to bringing us the latest and greatest in techniques and products that I wanted to share it all with you (her store is chock FULL of things that will have you tempted to empty your wallet...so don't say I didn't warn you -lol).

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope to see you again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
