Drunken Stampers #144: Person - Neil Armstrong

Good morning friends! It's time for another challenge at Drunken Stampers! Challenge 144: Person - Neil Armstrong.

As you may know, this term's challenges will be either a person, place, or thing. This week we pay homage to the first person to walk on the moon! (Side note: when we were coming up with the challenges, I asked my hubby to name a person off the top of his head. Yep, you guessed it: he picked Neil Armstrong! Not surprising as hubby has a PhD in astrophysics! I'm sure Spike decided to pick this person for our challenges because, well, this IS a challenge blog! We want to challenge you!) Anyhooo, it's team Tropical Hooters turn this week and here's what I came up with:

Here is another pic that shows the debossing on the "moon":

I stamped, colored and fussy cut the Earth and astronaut. My flag is made from red and white striped ribbon that I adhered around a tooth pick. I cut a teeny tiny piece of blue card stock and used a white marker to make the "stars" then adhered to the flag. I love the paper I used for the moon. It almost glows just like it! I die cut a piece of it from a grand circle nestie then used a bubble wrap embossing folder to deboss it, to emulate meteor hits. I wanted a goofy sentiment so I heat embossed the 'Hi ma'. ☺

Ok, so there you have it. I hope you find some time to play along with the Drunken Stampers this week! Don't forget to check out what the other members of Team Tropical Hooters came up with!
