I was a little girl, and my mother settled me into my rocking chair in front of the TV. She told me to pay close attention, and someday I would tell my children and grandchildren that I watched the first lunar landing live. Mom was ahead of her time, and recognized the importance of making memories. I've tried to do that with my son, but he is young enough that the jury is still out! I have always told him that I love him to the moon and back.
Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By as we honor the mission's lunar plaque inscription.
The one on the right was my first attempt. Meh. The solid deer didn't do it for me, too plain. I die cut the one on the right from white paper embossed with silver, and was much happier. Since the red and white paper was so busy, I skipped the sentiment and added a silver strip of washi tape and a white grosgrain ribbon. I love it when I can incorporate ribbon into a masculine card!!!!

I used the largest dies from a few Spellbinder nesties, and layered the SU patterned paper cut with the next smallest die. I scored off a one inch section to create the base, topped with old Sizzix holly leaf die cuts, tiny bells, and silver beads. I closed the top with adhesive, but I think I will make some with a tied ribbon.

July 20th will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. In honor of Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Michael Collins, and the men and women of NASA, we remember the mission's lunar plaque inscription.
We came in peace for all mankind.
Here is my interpretation:
We hope you'll join us by linking up an Apollo 11-inspired card/project. Our challenge winner will receive a $10 e-certificate to the merchant of her/his choice. See you in the W2CB Gallery!
Christmas Crafts All Year Round has a challenge to make something OTHER than a card. I like to give a something to work friends that won't break the bank. Since I work in an area without running water, we use a lot of hand sanitizer.
I started with a tutorial from Stampin' Scraper, and adjusted it to suit my Bath & Body Works bottle.
