The boys and I went this week to visit my parents so we could celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday.  It just happened to be the week the boys had winter break from school.  So we got to stay up there for two nights and spend the whole day with my mom on her birthday.  I made a birthday cake for my mom – a hummingbird cake with creamcheese frosting – this is my favorite cake to bake and I normally make it every year at Easter.  This time I also made it for my mom’s birthday and guess what I decorated it with? 

Die cut butterflies!  I used Stampin’ Up!’s new Beautiful Butterflies BIGZ die for the Big Shot machine.  I cut Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss card stock and then stamped them with Baroque Motifs swirl in the matching color ink.  Super quick and easy!  Here is a picture of the cake:

I scattered the extra butterflies around the table.  I’ll be posting her birthday gift later – I’ll just tell you that it coordinates with the cake decorations….. 

Tomorrow I’ll post the birthday presents I made for my niece and nephew.  So I hope you’ll visit me again.

Happy Stamping,
