Knock Knock - Who's There? - It's the "WEIMAN WRANGLERS"!!

If you're here for my CSAYL Monday challenge, please scroll down to the next post, but not before you read my exciting announcement!

Today I'm thrilled to announce the newest set of digital images now available from Pink Cat Studio!! This set is the result of collaboration between the uber-talented Melissa and Lauren in memory of our friend Alicia's four year old son, Ethan.

100% of the proceeds of these images will go directly to the "Make A Wish Foundation" in honor of Ethan Weiman. Pretty amazing don't you think?!
Here are the images...
Cowboy Ethan digital image and sentiments - $4
Cowgirl Ava digital image and sentiments - $4

Cowboy Ethan AND Cowgirl Ava with sentiments - $6

I was tickled when Lauren and Melissa sent me the images over the weekend and asked me to make some samples for the release today. Thanks gals for letting me be a part of this.

I decided to make a cowgirl gift set...Just adorable don't you think?

For the card, I used some patterned papers by BasicGrey and Stampin Up. The image was colored with my Copics and I embellished with some pink ribbon, a button and some twine.

And here's the cowboy boot gift box...
I used Lauren's Stocking Stuffer template for this. After I printed out the template, I added a pointy toe, a boot heel and a decorative top. I was totally amazed with myself when I finished and it actually looked like a cowboy boot! We've all been there right? You have a great idea in your head, but getting it out on paper doesn't always work. Mission accomplished this time!

After I had the boot shape cut out, I pierced around the edges.

Then I added some hand stitching to finish it off.

Here's what the boot looks like with a bag of goodies inside...

I decided to fill it up with "Trail" mix of course!

So are you ready to purchase some adorable images for a good cause?

I *love* the cowboy boot you made. That is so clever, and it came out just perfect. This is a fantastic gift set, and such a great use of these new digi stamps.

Hi MacKenzie,

You cards and projects are great today I love love love them!!!

I am also so proud of Lauren and Melissa for doing this!!

Alicia is the sweetest blogging friend and she and Ethan and their family have a very special place in my heart so, I thought the least I could do was join in and offer up a prize for generating more towards the Fundraiser.

I contacted Melissa and I am offering up a prize on my blog too.

They can win any Pink Cat Set of their choice by

1. Purchasing the images to bennifit Make a Wish in Ethan's Honor

2. Post a link to the Fundraiser on their Blog

3. They can also earn a bunch of stamped up RAK Pink Cat images from me if they make a card with the images and post another link to the Fundraiser by June 27th.

Thank you so much for doing this!!!
