Birthday Wishes for Abby

It was my niece Abby's 12th birthday on Friday and this is the card I made just for her!
I used a sketch by Heather Huggins that was for a Whiff of Joy challenge I beleive. I did use a Whiff of Joy stamp too, she's so pretty!! I really love this paper from CTMH too, it's called Perfect Day. The sentiment and oval stamp are from verve Visual and the little metal tokens are from CTMH. I used my Happy Birthday CB folder and ran the Juniper piece through the CB, added some wee little rhinestones to the right of the image and used my stardust gliter pen on the flourishes of her pants.
Landon has a terrible cough and runny nose, Kirsten still has a lingering cough and I have a rotten head cold!! I was hopeing to get my Christmas shopping finished up yesterday but it was -34 C here, so along with the fact I wanted to saty in bed all day, I didn't go anywhere. I am hoping to get it all done this weekend...which I know is going otbe crazy out there, but oh well!!
I hope you are all in the holiday mode!! Thanks for visiting, come back soon!!
P.S. To my secret sister out there...I am so stumped as to who you are, but THANK YOU so much, I am looking forward to broswing their collections of stamps and doing some shopping!! I love the e-cards first I thought it was some rotten spam until I figured it out!!
Now to the secret sister I am to send to, bare with me, I haven't gone anywhere, but hope to get out on Wednesday if I feel better and I will get your package sent off may be a tad later that I had originally planned, but it'll be there!!
