A card for Ethan

>> Tuesday, June 30, 2009

You may have heard of little Ethan Weiman and his tough battle with Neuroblastoma. Pink Cat Studio created a set of adorable gigi images that are available to purchase HERE. All proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish foundation in Illinois in honor of Ethan.

Seriously, these little digis are just adorable. You can choose to get a little cowboy (Ethan), or a little cowgirl (Ava, ethan's sister) for $4 OR you can get them both together plus some sentiments for the low cost of $6! It really is an outstanding deal!

This week the MyTime challenge was a color challenge. I always mean to participate in Lauren's challenges because for one thing, she's my friend, and for another thing, she has been so supportive of my new stamp adventure and for a third thing, they are just fun challenges! But for this or that reason, I dont always do them. I'm going to get better at that! Well, in light of Lauren's generosity with her give away and support of this fantastic cause, I wanted to support it and help too! So i knew i definitely wanted to participate in the challenge this week and made it my number 1 card making priority. :)

Here's my card using the MyTIme color challenge of Brown, Mustard, Green and Terracotta...



My "terracotta" turned out a little more red than i intended, but oh well. :) Here's a closer look...




ALl the edges have been sponged with buttercup ink from Close to my Heart and Tea Dye Ranger Distress Ink (darker patterned paper inked with brushed corduroy distress ink) and the image has been colored with copics.

And now for...

Katie this is absolutely adorable. Great coloring (I had trouble with the Terra Cotta too) and overall layout. Thanks so much for participating and especially for supporting the Weimans. Hugs!

What a cute card! Your coloring is fabulous....I can see a little boy riding at the Fair in him. :> I bought the Weiman Wranglers, but when my printer and I got off to bad terms, I had to go a different route for this color challenge. Yours came out wonderfully! :>
