November Blessings

Happy Tuesday everyone!!
Mel'odee here. What a blessing it is to be able to share with you today.  November has been noted as the month to be thankful. I am definitely blessed and thankful for all of my sweet art friends and AP family. This has been a crazy crazy year but though it has been full of craziness blessings have been abundant even in the darkest of  hours.  I have so many reasons to be thankful and I am sure you do too. So in honor of this bountiful month of blessings I created this little Thanksgiving card.

 I used  the collage sheet 2250 Thanksgiving place cards and 2021 Let us be Thankful, paper from Graphic 45 French Country collection and a little wink of Stella ( yes it's there and I do apologize for the pictures, having a little camera difficulty this crazy day,LOL)  all found at our online store, along with some brown & red cardstock, vintage lace and trim and a tiny brad.

I just love vintage especially this time of year. It just seems to bring about the warm fuzzies especially as I reflect back through the year, a year despite the difficulties has had so many beautiful and wonderful blessings. What are you thankful for this year, we would love to hear in your comments.

As I said before, I so am thankful for the opportunity to be apart of this fabulous design team and for the blessing of being able to share my work with all of you, our wonderful followers and patrons. So for today and always I send you  "Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving and a blessed year"!!



  1. Your Thanksgiving card is beautiful and the rich fall colors make me nostalgic!

  2. This is beautiful, Mel'odee, and I do so love the vintage feel of your card.

  3. A beautiful autumn card Melodee I so love the wonderful sunflower background you have used. xx

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
