Weiman Wranglers – Color Challenge


wrangler

A few weeks ago, Cowboy Ethan Weiman just a few months shy of his 5th birthday, lost his battle to Leukemia.  My heart went out to this family, I cannot begin to comprehend the pain they are experiencing.  Lauren Meader partnered with Melissa, owner of Pink Cat Studio to create the Weiman Wranglers-Ethan & his little sister Ava on horses, available as digital downloads in which the proceeds will be donated to the Make a Wish foundation in Ethan’s honor.  Make a Wish granted a wish for Ethan, his very own horse so that’s why they are donating the $ to them in his honor. 

I chose to buy these digital images not only to help in this fundraiser, but because I knew these stamps would be perfect to scrapbook my nephew’s 1st birthday party pictures, which was a cowboy theme. 

The cards I made are to send to my nephew & niece just to say hello!  The boy wrangler I made using Lauren’s Color Challenge today {MTTC03} Brown, Mustard, Green & Terracotta and the sketch I is from Our Creative Corner sketch challenge today.  I chose to use Gina K. Designs’ Ribbon Stripes in lieu of the left vertical panel, I thought it went nicely with the images and I topped it off with a lasso made from hemp cord.

Here is the little cowgirl, made with red, brown & mustard.  I love the little sentiments that are available as downloads too. 

Here is the link to Ethan’s mom Alicia’s blog if you’d like to venture over there and leave her some love; if you are a praying person, please join me in asking for God’s comfort in the days, months and years ahead as they move on with their lives without their precious little boy.

I love both of your cards! How perfect that they serve dual purposes in supporting the Weiman fundraiser and your nephew's birthday! Your coloring is fantastic, and I love the little lassos you added :O)

Thanks for playing along, for supporting and promoting the fundraiser and most importantly praying and requesting prayers for this amazing family. Like you, I cannot even imagine their grief, but will do anything I can to help ease their burden...and pray for them every day.

So glad you were able to play along again! I love seeing your work...you are so talented :]

Both cards are cute! Love your use of the hemp cord and the wranglers! I've purchased my own set of Weiman Wranglers, but since I'm currently arguing with my printer, I went another route for the color challenge. Its been wonderful to watch this whole community come together.
