Click Here to purchase the digital stamps

The Cowboy Ethan and Cowgirl Ava digital stamps can be purchased separately for $4.00 each or combined for $6.00.



Help us honour the life of Ethan Weiman by purchasing the Weiman Wranglers digital stamps. All proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish foundation of Illinois as requested by Alicia & Dave Weiman.

On August 5, 2004, Ethan Weiman was welcomed into this world, and into the loving arms of his parents, Dave and Alicia Weiman.

On June 12, 2009 Ethan's little life left those same loving arms, as he was welcomed into the loving arms of God in Heaven. 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.We've designed the Weiman Wranglers digital stamps to honor the life of Ethan Weiman and raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

The following was written by Alicia Weiman:

"Ethan was “the bestest boy ever” - sweet, loveable, witty, smart, and a true cowboy through and through. Ethan loved to be outside with his horse, Questions, and his “little ass”, Ranger. Ethan was a sharp dresser and always wore a button down shirt, blue jeans, “seat” belt, cowboy boots, and his black cowboy hat. Ethan always had a smile on his face and could bring a smile to all of those around.

Ethan enjoyed many things during his short life here on earth - legos, riding the bus and going to school, swimming, watching cartoons and movies, playing the guitar and harmonica, playing dress up, going for bike rides and walks to the winery, hanging out with his friends, reading books, Casey’s taco pizza, and just loving life. Ethan was only here for a short time, but he touched the lives of many. May God Bless our Cowboy E!"

Here is my card that I created with the digital stamp. It's always sad when a child passes away. It's hard to imagine a child full of life taken away so young. Alicia, Ethan's mom, is one of our fellow stampin' bloggers and my heart goes out to her and her family.

Please stop by Pink Cat Studio and purchase these precious digital stamps with proceeds going to the Make A Wish Foundation! It's a worthy cause and at the same time, you'll receive these awesome images.

From now on, when I stamp with these images, I will think of Ethan and how full of life he was.

For those of you who purchase these images, please spread the word by creating a card with the images and post them on your blog. The beauty of the blogging community is we can spread the word throughout blogland and really make a difference.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!!

Maria, your card is adorable! I found it really hard to make cards with this image...not because I didn't like it....but because I couldn't stop crying for the Weiman family.
