CIC179 - Bottoms Up

Another clever decorating idea for your cupcakes.  This is the kind of decorating that even I can do.  The problem is that I'd have to start buying Starbuck's coffee and collect those sleeves.  I have a love/hate relationship with Starbucks.  It's mostly about the names of things, especially the sizes.  I'm too old for this stuff, what's wrong with small, meduim and large?   Dunkin donuts is so much easier for me.  But I do love those frapper dapper thingies.  But I digress...  These adorable cuppies are for your inspiration this week at the Cupcake Inspriations Challenge.  And what better sponsor than Fresh Brewed Designs.  There's lots of coffee inspired images but that's not all there is, you need to go check them out.  It'll be fun.

For my card I chose to use an image of a " to go" type cup.  I love that little sleeve with the buttons.  It's too dang cute.  I haven't seen them for sale anywhere but I bet some clever crafter is making them and selling them, they'd be a great craft show item.  I could make them but I'm too lazy, I rather just admire someone else's handy work and again I digress... I kept the color palette of the inspiration photo.  It's perfect for a masculine card.  Since the image is gender neutral, make those buttons pink and you've got a girly card. 

Pour yourself a cup of joe and get started on a card, you'll have fun and maybe win a prize.  So don't forget to link up to the challenge.  Why not stop over there and see what the rest of the sweeties have made.
