From The Bottom Of My He{art}....

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day weekend! Mine was filled with lots of family, fun and laughter as we celebrated Valentines and my Mama's Birthday.  And, here it is...Tuesday already!  I'm still recovering from the weekend and trying to get back into my "normal" routine. So, while I should be cleaning my house and catching up on laundry {sigh}...I instead headed straight upstairs to my Studio to play this morning....makes sense...right?

While the dust bunnies and laundry are waiting for my return, I had fun playing along with the Anything Goes challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog ....

And, as you can tell, I'm still having fun playing with my watercolors ♥

After using some pretty blues and greens on my watercolor paper, I stamped this fun easel and sentiment from the I Heart Art stamp set by Paper Smooches and colored it up using Copic Markers on the wooden parts of the easel and watercolors on the canvas part.

I added a fun heart cut from hot pink felt using the Bundle of Stitched Shapes die from Simon Says Stamp.  I used a Copic Marker to color a bit of seam binding for my hot pink ribbon and added a few white sequins to finish things up.

A few paint splatters, ribbon and this cute paint brush (also from the I Heart Art stamp set) dress up the inside of my card a bit.

And, that's about it!
I guess I have to go downstairs and back to the real world of laundry and dust bunnies now {sigh}.  But, before I do, I'm off to link up my card with the

Challenge - over at.....

Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you have a great day and I'll see you soon....
