One Stop Crafts Challenge #114 and Stamping Vacation

Hi all this is always a difficult topic for me even though I have more male siblings and relatives than female but I enjoyed making this card which is for one of my brothers whose birthday is at the end of this month.
Our sponsor this week is 

"Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps...we started this store April 1st, No Fooling haha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults haha, I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...
I been creating stamps for a little less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there was much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone..stitchy xoxox"
The winner will receive the following
Here is my DT card using an image from Stitchy Bear.
I have coloured the image with Copics but kept it pastel, I used Bearlymine Papers, added ribbon, card candy and sentiment.

My next DT card is for this months 
Use an Animal that has Eyebrows
Although I am a big time animal lover I have never actually stopped to think about eyebrows on animals I always look at their eyes.  However when I got my set of stamps from The Stamps Of Life and saw Cookie it looks as if he has eyebrows so I just had to use him for my card. 
I have coloured him with Copics and mounted him onto brown card the check papers is Bearlymine I then mounted that also onto brown card.  I added a ribbon and some heart pearls, I have kept this one quite simple, as I have done for some of the cards that I have been making and that I will be showing soon.
Here is a close up of Cookie. 
Well I do hope that you have enjoyed your visit and that you like my cards I do hope that you will come join us at both 
we so look forward to seeing you.
