Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched?

My daughter asked me to make owl cupcakes for her class.
We had SO much fun making them. Aren't they cute?!
Okay okay, I know you didn't come here to see cupcakes!

Here's my card for today...

Anyone who knows me can confirm the fact that I can be bribed with Starbucks.
I'm addicted.
If I could hook myself up to a Starbucks IV, I would.

The same is true for my friend Wanda, so when her birthday came around I picked up a gift card for her. Of course I couldn't give it to her without a matching Starbucks birthday card to go with it right? SU's "Like it a Latte" set was perfect for my little project.

(I picked up a the Starbucks logo stamp last year from a rude little company with horrible customer service. I won't be advertising for them on my blog, but if you want this image, be sure to read to the end.)

Here's a close up of the frothy goodness on top. I used white liquid applique and heat set it to get the "poofy" effect. Love that stuff...

Here's a peek at the inside of the card.

And a close up of the gift card holder.

Are there any other Starbucks addicts reading this? Leave me a comment with your favorite drink. I'll draw a name on Friday and send the winner 10 stamped images of the Starbucks logo.

Thanks for popping by!

Super cool, I am going to get myself that stamp. I can match their rudeness no problem! What I want to know is how do I win one fo those owl cupcakes Yummy and too cute for words, give me some decorating pointers today. I wonder if I can unpack the cupcake pan long enough to make those owls and then repack it for the move. Hmm...

I am hoping if I don't win- I can still bribe it out of you- where you got that stamp.......
