Here's to you Cowboy Ethan!

On August 5, 2004, Ethan Weiman was welcomed into this world, and into the loving arms of his parents, Dave and Alicia Weiman. (I've had the pleasure of working with Ethan's Mom, Alicia, on the My Time to Create Challenge Team).

On June 12, 2009 Ethan's little life left those same loving arms. In his mother's words " Heaven gained the greatest little boy ever".

Ethan was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in July of 2007. He was a brave, and tough little cowboy! Ethan loved Knock Knock jokes, balloons, and of course, being the true cowboy that he was - horses! His younger sister, Ava just adored her big, brave brother.

Pink Cat Studios has designed the Weiman Wranglers digital stamps to honor the life of Ethan Weiman and raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation. The Cowboy Ethan and Cowgirl Ava digital stamps can be purchased separately for $4.00 each or combined for $6.00. You can read about and purchase the digital download HERE. Here's a look at the digi stamps:

And here's what I've created so far with that adorable little Cowboy Ethan image:

Stamps: Weiman Wranglers digi stamps (Pink Cat Studios)
Paper: printed digi paper from Giddy Up by Heather Roselli (Sweet Shoppe)
Accessories: Star Punch, Hodgepodge Hardware (SU); Copic Markers; Leather Fringe (from fabric store).

Info About Digital Stamps

Tracey Cuccia has created a very informative tutorial on how to use digital stamps. Check out her tutorial that will be posted on her blog on Tuesday.

I hope you'll join me in honoring this amazing little boy's much too-short life and helping his loving family to make another ill child's final wish come true by purchasing this stamp set. Even if you have no intention of using the set, the funds will benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation in Ethan's honor.
