Color Throwdown #48 and Cowgirl Ava

Welcome to another Color Throwdown! LeAnne is our hostess this week, and she chose her colors in honor of the retiring Stampin' Up! In Colors! This is such a nice soft color combination, so I can't wait to see what you create with it! I've created two cards for this weeks challenge...
My first card is in honor of the life of Ethan Weiman. You can purchase the digital images of Cowboy Ethan, and his sidekick sister, Cowgirl Ava at the Pink Cat Studio website (and read Ethan's story) and help raise funds for the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Illinois!
For my second card, I used some of my digital stamps from Digital Stamp Oasis! Susie Squirrel is trying to stay dry here, but she's a little under the weather! My sentiment on this card is also digital as it was a free download from Becky Higgins. I've seen Michelle Wooderson use this font on her recipe cards, and just love it!

We hope you'll take time to play along this week! Remember, we choose one entry each week as the Featured Stamper, and then we'll choose one person from all the Featured Stampers in June to be our Guest Designer for August! I hope it'll be YOU! Check out designs from the other Throwdown girls for inspiration, and remember to link your creation with Mr. Linky back on the Throwdown blog!


Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate all your visits and comments so much!

Hi Tammy,

Your work is so amazing Tammy!!! I have been meaning to get over here (well I have actually been her several times in the last week but have not had time to comment!!! LOL!!!

Anyway I wanted to tell you that I had noticed last week you had started following my blog and I was so surprised and excited that some one as talented and "famous" as you had hopped onto my blog!!! LOL!!!

Anyway I am finally making it over here, and I thought I already was on your follow list but it looks like I am not so I went ahead and added you on my list.

Your work is always so pretty and so amazing with the coloring I just adore your creative ability!!!

I love your Pink Cat Studio card with the Weiman Wranglers images too!!!!

Hi Tammy
I have never submited to a color throwdown or whatever other names different sites call it because I never have asked if you have to use those exact colors or can use what you have that is similar to those colors.

Thanks for clearing up this mystery for me.
