Well, I am excited to show these adorable little cupcakes I made with a Sizzix Bigz XL Die.

And the best part is I bought this wonderful die at a "garage sale" my local stamp store
has once a year.  You can rent a table, bring anything that is cardmaking/stamping related, clearly marked with the price and sell it.  I bought this wonderful die for $ 8.00, it is originally
$34.99!  I spent a total of $58.00 and came home with stamps (house mouse), embellishments, and paper (two brand new 12x12 packs, Martha Stewart was one.)

These are the cupcakes I made.

This picture shows the little pocket that the die creates.

Sizzix (656090) I don't know how old it is
or if it is still available, I do know I am glad
I got it!

How fun are these!  The die also comes with a
candle cutout you can use instead of the cherry!
So much fun to decorate.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your day.  Until later...

Oooh! I've got that die. It's one of the first I ever bought. I'd forgotten all about it. I'll be digging it out again. Your cupcakes look fantastic Sue. Lx

These are just precious and you I see you are a great "garage sale" shopper. I was so sorry that I had to miss my LSS's garage sale this spring. I usually get some fantastic finds there. Have a good weekend.
