Happy Birthday, Gloria!!!

strawberry cupcake, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

Today is my friend, Gloria's 82nd birthday. She is also my former mother-in-law but we really don't talk about that anymore. Now she is my friend. Much better, don't you think? Gloria is always encouraging me to do more watercolor work so I jumped out of my box of sketching first and just went to watercolor. Well actually I did both of these birthday cards simultaneously so that my stokes from the sketched image was fresh in my brain for the watercolor only cupcake. I might just try it again!
I hope you enjoy your birthday, the strawberry shortcake that your daughter is making you, Gloria and this not so yummy calorie free cupcake!

Gloria's birthday cupcake is absolutely amazing! The paper muffin cup looks so real, I just want to peel it off the cupcake. Every day I am more in awe of your talent!
