Ok, last thing quick!! I had wanted to post this before now!! I am sure you have seen by now, that Melissa @ Pink Cat Studio, has put out some ADORABLE Digi stamps!!! These stamps were designed in honor of a little boy named Ethan Weiman and his family!! ALL, not some, ......ALL of the proceeds will go to the Make A Wish foundation!! Isn't that incredible?? There are also some girls that have put together a giveaway too, to encourage you all to purchase this set!! Now, since they are Digi, you know they are VERY reasonable in price!!!

I hope you will visit there and I hope you will contribute!! I did!!! I went to the families journal site and read some of their story!! I couldn't read all, because I honestly couldn't see thru my tears!! I truly ADMIRE this family!!! As a mother, I can't imagine living thru what they have lived thru!! Although it is true that Ethan is in a better place now and no longer suffering, it is heart wrenching all the same!! I feel that this story should teach us all, to appreciate EVERYTHING!!!! And....LOVE each and every day!!! Everyone and everything!! Ethan was a REMARKABLE little boy, to endure SO much!! HIs family? Also remarkable, to stand right there with him! Oh my, I can't even begin to put into words, how their story has touched me! You know I could babble on and on!! All I know is I thank God every day for my life and EVERYONE in it!!

Today we are releasing these new digital stamps to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in honor of Ethan Weiman. Little Ethan passed away on June 12th from Neuroblastoma cancer. Ethan was a true cowboy and loved horses, balloons and Knock Knock jokes. By purchasing these digital stamps you will help brighten the day of a sick child as the money we raise will go towards making one of their dreams come true.Please visit http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/Stamps/WeimanWranglers/WeimanWranglers.htm to purchase these digital stamps and help the Make-A-Wish Foundation.Last week Lauren Meader, a member of my DT, contacted me to ask if I could make some digi stamps to help raise some money in order to honor Ethan and the Weiman family. I thought that was such a wonderful idea and got right to designing. Lauren told me that Ethan loved my Cowboy Billy stamp so she suggested that I design a new Cowboy stamp for Ethan and one for his little sister Ava too. Ethan loved horses and balloons so that is how we came up with the design of the kiddies riding their horses and holding a balloon.We would be so grateful if you would help us to raise some money in Ethan’s honor. All proceeds from the sale of the stamps, after Paypal fees are deducted, will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois as requested by Alicia and Dave Weiman.Want to win a Pink Cat Studio gift certificate or three??Lauren Meader, Vicki Garrett and Heather Schlatter are all generously offering the chance to win some moola to buy PCS stuff. Lauren's is a card making challenge using the new digi stamps and Vicki's and Heather's involve helping to spread the word about our fundraiser. Thank you so much ladies for your generosity!
