Every season is a season for being thankful .... and fall just captures it best of all.  Don't you just love the autumn colors and the feeling crispness in the air?

I combined all kinds of new products in this card and had a good time doing it. I especially love the Thinlits and how well they work. Hint: I place a piece of waxed paper between my cardstock and the Thinlit Die so the sentiment pops out easily!

Chocolate Cranberry Truffles
(my name for them)
And a new recipe today in my gradual effort to work towards eating more raw food. Any raw foodies out there?

I found this delightful recipe here, at and changed it up a bit with what I had on hand by substituting dried cranberries for the cherries and adding a tablespoon of water to make it moist enough to create these amazing energy balls...... yummy!

And now... how to use the Thinlits
