Another Folded Tree and a Holiday Recipe!

I loved the little Folded Christmas Tree that we did for last week's Technique Challenge so much that I decided to do one for a fall design too! You can see how to make the tree here. It's so fast and easy!

My images are from owls2love by The {Stamps} of Life with Stephanie Barnard. I stamped my images using Stephanie's Premium Ink in Licorice and then fussy cut the owl. I think he looks cute in his folded tree and thought this would make a fun Thanksgiving "thank you."

Have a great week! I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and stamping with my mom! Here is a little recipe I like to share around this time - fast and easy and elegant!

Cranberry-Pineapple Minis

1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, in juice
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) raspberry flavor gelatin
1 can (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
2/3 cup walnut pieces (optional)
1 apple, chopped

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add enough water to juice to measure 2-1/2 cups; pour into saucepan. Bring to boil. Pour over gelatin mixes in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved.
Stir in pineapple, cranberry sauce, nuts and apple. Spoon into 24 paper-lined 2-1/2-inch muffin cups. Refrigerate 2-1/2 hours or until firm. Remove liners.
