Appreciation is the Theme at the Pth of Positivity Challenge Blog

November is a month in which Autumn is in full swing in the northern hemisphere, with cold winds briskly blowing the fallen leaves as if sweeping clean the sidewalks of summer's bounty. It is also the month to be aware of everything in your life, appreciating what you have, where it came from and how you can share your own bounty.
November is the month in which we delve deeply in thanksgiving, and what is appreciation without acknowledging it with gratitude and good deeds. In fact, William Arthur Ward said, "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
With that in mind, the Path of Positivity asks you to show us your cards and projects that follow the challenge theme of Appreciation. A simple thank you card, a holiday gift for a neighbor, something that shows you are aware of something or someone whom you appreciate.
I created a digital card to thank the many veterans who have served their country. I am a veteran myself, as is my husband, and our medical needs are met through the local VA Hospital. I will be printing up my card and leaving them everywhere for patients during November as a reminder that their time, their courage and their commitment is appreciated, no matter when or where or how they served.
I used two kits from Kitten Scraps, one of two sponsors this month. The kits are "Patriotic Kids" and "This Year Boy November Papers."

My name is Nathalie and I design under the name of Kitten Scraps. Check out her blog and Facebook page which offer layout ideas and the occasionally freebie. While you're there, stop by her store to check out the latest kits, CU items and SVG Files.

Our second generous sponsor is A Day for Daisies:
A Day for Daisies (ADFD)
A Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 3000 digital illustrations and a fast growing line of new clear polymer stamp sets, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!

How will you show your appreciation this month? The Path of Positivity would love to see and hear what you create!

Pat, what a wonderful idea to leave cards for those at the VA hosp! I'm sure this fun and patriotic card will brighten their day!
