:) Woo boy it's been a while

For the past couple of weeks, my boyfriend had come to visit me. He went home for the summer, so it had been about 3 months since I have seen him. :) I was so excited, and we had such a good time doing tourist activities in Vancouver when he came.

O_O we took in excess of 500 photos while he was here. I'm such an asian :P

By the way, I totally neglected to mention some amazing candies I won in the past month or so. :) I wanted to post them and say thank you! ^^ I feel so utterly lucky! (Sorry I'm a bit late!)

Ann's Whimsy Giveaway ^^ I received it and the stamp set is beautiful!

I also won Surfer Ian from TGF after winning their  Mystery Monday Challenge
Steph's amazing candy ^^ Isn't her card just lovely? It looks even better in person.

Lastly, I won Lilith from Stamp Insanity for winning their Summer Colors Challenge :)

Super exciting ^^

^^ For my cousin's 37th birthday, I made him this card. He loves cars, and I put the crown on his head because everybody calls him a Princess. Honestly he totally is a princess :) but it's a joke and we mean it in a fun way.

I colored the images with Copic markers. I used dimensionals on pretty much everything there. I inked a dollar store stencil for the background swirly thing :) I thought it looked kinda cool. The cool star thing behind TGF Edward is a spellbinder. ^^ I really like this spellbinder. Lastly, I finished the inside with a strip along the side and once again inked the stencil.

Okay without further ado, here is my card:
