Cow Piles

I call 'em cow pies...but uh...same thing.  This is a different sort of cow pile.  Ain't they CUTE?

a pile of COW PILES!  LOL.

This was a SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive - FlyLady term) story in embossing.  sheesh.  Not just ANY embossing powder...BLACK embossing powder.  I know embossing powder don't get old.  Better location lighting wise would help...but anyhoo...stamped TWELVE...cow piles...stamp two in black craft, dump on black powder, stamp two more...and then I heated them with the heat gun.  First in here is not the best to see the embossing powder gloss "spread" as it heats up...and I ain't doing it over the powder pal tray sitting on my desk, 'k.  No way.   Six of 'em didn't heat up properly & I learned the gritty way.  Ick. 

I fussy cut the remaining SIX and almost cut the tail off one...MOOOOOO!  eek.  Oh!  That brings back a memory.  And no, I didn't cut off a real cow tail. 

Several years back, we had a little stear...bought him from Dad...we bottle fed him.  Somehow, he managed to lose his tail.  Oh boy.  We didn't find the tail...and worried about flies and pink eye as he got older because they use their tails to flick the flies off.  The worry was unfounded as he learned to adapt.  We named him...Bobby Tail.  LOL.  OK.  Back to the paper cow tail...I sewed it back on...I  mean taped it on the back & continued trimming.  She's gonna be glued down, so she'll be O.K. 

Ain't they cute?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
