Cupcake Painting Giveaway!

This morning I climbed the stairs to my "studio" (messy paint room) with my hot mug of coffee topped with whipped cream and sat down with a fresh new canvas. An idea came out of nowhere and before I knew what I was doing I had opened another canvas. I never like painting the same thing more than once, but for all my blog readers out there, I decided it was time for a special "Giveaway".
Please leave a comment on this blog before Sunday, Dec. 7th at midnight and I will draw a name on Monday morning. If you add a picture of this cupcake painting to your blog along with a link to my blog, I will give you three more chances to win. Please be sure to let me know that you've linked to my blog.
Click on any of the pictures for a closer view.
Decorate your home for Christmas with this colorful cupcake painting. This little gingerbread cupcake is topped with fluffy white frosting to give the appearance of freshly fallen snow. Two little evergreen trees and a little cottage are tucked into the frosting and a little "Believe" tag is applied to the red and cream plaid cupcake liner. The gingerbread lettering is topped with white snow. Sparkly glitter is applied to the frosting and the "Believe" tag and evergreen is tucked in below the cupcake.

As a consolation to those who aren't lucky enough to win on Monday morning, you still have a chance to bid on the other one that I will be lisiting on eBay tonight. The link for my auctions is in the righthand sidebar. That auction will end next Wednesday, December 10th.

  4. Hi Cathie,
    The cupcake painting is so cute. I love the little house on top. I was thinking of your paintings when I was in Annapolis last weekend. There are so many old houses and building there that I know you would love to paint. I've put a link for your giveaway on my blog. I hope I'm lucky.
