Arrow What an awesome holiday to celebrate - due 2/28!!!

I would have hated to miss THIS holiday, for sure!

Today, February 18, is

Cow Milked While Flying In An Airplane Day
Today is the 80th anniversary of the event it is commemorating, when Elm Farm's "Ollie' became the first cow to fly in an airplane on this day in 1931. During the flight she was milked and the milk was sealed in paper containers and parachuted over St. Louis, Missouri.

I'm sure you all agree we HAVE to celebrate this one!

How, you say?

Beats me - I don't have a cow, or an airplane, and wouldn't know what to do with either one if I had them.

But I have NO doubt that you guys will figure out a way to commemorate this special day in a papercrafting project of some kind. How you interpret it ...entirely up to you!! And however you choose to do it, your entry will count toward the February gift certificate drawing provided it uses at least one item available from Paper Wishes (but the more the better) and is posted here not later than midnight US Pacific time on Tuesday, 2/28!!!

You said it was up to our own interpretation so here goes. I used Picnic PP and Red Jewel Border Dazzles, white card stock and Stampendous "Cow"girl boot stamp. I would have preferred "Howdy" but I don't have a stamp or cutting die like that.

I have more ideas but this is all I have time for today.

Cute Card, Daria.
It must be the farm girl in me, but I took one look at those (leather) boots and thought, "Poor Ollie!"

I don't get many opportunities to use my cow stamp.
All of the paper except the vellum is from PS kits.

Both are cute cards - the cow is exceptional because it is coming down in a parachute - that is thinking outside the box!!

Ok this is a topic out in the weird zone! Daria cute boot card. Gotta say, though, Judy, your stamp is too, too appropriate! Very cute. But I have to ask, what is the stamp? It looks like you created the strings on the cow and the parachute to make Ollie drifting in the wind... Is that accurate?
