I did take a break from the Christmas card challenge last month, but I hope to start again. The theme this week is Peace on Earth Day.  The challenge is to use re-cycled, re-used, or up-cycled elements. I have had these fabric gift tags for many years, but never had a plan for using them.

I actually got two more red cards finished for the Jingle Belle challenge.
The newest challenge with Jingle Belles is “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer”, or use the color red In a card. The ornament is “hanging” on the card.

I did not get this card entered into the Jingle Belles Rock challenge last week, but I have it in my stash for 2020 anyway! The prompt was to do something with “three”.

I am going to try working with the Jingle Belles challenge this year. If successful, I will have my Christmas cards for 2020 completed by the first of December!

This week’s challenge was to use wrapping paper, tags, or some recycled item from Christmas. Here is my first card for this year. I cut the Three Wisemen from some wrapping paper I have.

Miscellaneous Hodpodge!

We have been so busy this year I have not taken time to write here. This post will be some of the highlights!

Travel:  We wanted to go out of state each month for a trip, and so far we are meeting that goal!

January - San Diego, CA for the American Farm Bureau Annual Convention
February - Outer Banks, NC because we had never been there and did not want crowds of summer
March - Nashville, TN to see sister Carol and Earl, Mia, Tom and Diane were there as well
April - Gifford Pinchot State Park, PA when we went camping with all the kids and Joe and Diane
May - Fenton, MO to visit Mom and Dad and family. We were there for their 65th wedding anniversary and Mother's Day this year.
June - Edgewater, NJ and Manhattan, NY to see Earl and Mia and my college roommate Gail
July - Gettysburg, PA for the Vintage Base Ball Festival with Joel, Katie, Becky, Joe and Diane
August - ??

Last week's baseball game was the Brandywine Base Ball club of West Chester, PA. These teams play by 1864 rules, including equipment, (no gloves, different bats, etc.), uniforms, game rules, umpires (called an arbiter), etc.  Injuries to the hands are common!
