Christmas Cupcake Ornament

Yup, another cupcake but this one is an ornament for a Christmas swap over at ArtHaven...The ornament is actually a little blackboard with a wooden frame...It measures about 3"x3"...I got my acrylics out and painted a chocolate cupcake with pink frosting and green cupcake pants...I then painted little colored candy bits in red and green on the frosting and cute a little sprig of holly...I painted the frame in red and white stripes to give the feeling of a candy cane...I added some German glass glitter to the cupcake for sparkle, but it doesn't show up very well in the photo...There's a thin gold cord attached at the top for hanging...

I'm busy making my Christmas cards and will have some to share soon...I also made another ornament and will share that soon, as well...My tree is up and decorated but I still have much to do and Christmas is only 3 weeks away...I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying some holiday planning...Thank you for stopping by my blog today...I appreciate it so much and love your kind comments...See you again soon...Kathy
