Celebrate With a Valentine Cupcake

My momma always taught me not to lie. I don't think this is a lie though as much as it is a change of heart. Remember in my last post where I said this is my last Valentine cupcake painting for this year......well I just never know when my mind will take a completely different direction as I put my brush in my hand. It all started when I took a short trip to Hobby Lobby after leaving the doctor's office. I came across some cute harlequin ribbon and made my purchase along with a few other cute items that were 50 percent off.

After taking down all my Christmas decorations, I needed something to put on the shelf above my kitchen stove.
....and I found this cute pillow for about $4.00 for my new computer chair.

I found some cute black and white harlequin ribbon that I decided to grab to use for a cupcake painting in the future. I love to keep lots of ribbon on hand. Now, this is where I had a change of mind. As I was getting ready to paint, somewhere in the back of mind a little voice said, "You still have time for another little Valentine cupcake painting using your new ribbon." With a complete reversal now I switched directions and this little painting appeared....

"I Love You Cupcake"

I listed this one last night on eBay.

This very rich dark chocolate fudge cupcake is topped with fluffy white frosting. Tiny red hearts are an extra little touch and a red, "I ♥ You" ribbon is tied around the base of the cupcake. A small white heart hangs from the red ribbon with the word "Cupcake" in the center. So, when read all together you are saying to your sweet Valentine, "I ♥ You Cupcake"! A black and white harlequin grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and tied in a bow at the top.

Doesn't it look cute on my shelf in the kitchen along with my other purchases? I may have to paint one for myself!

If you are looking for a gift for that special someone for Valentine's Day the following two prints are available in both my eBay and Etsy Stores.

"Love Valentine"

"Be Mine Valentine"
