Is every one ready for Christmas. Only a few days left to get all those home made gifts made. Check out my post below this one for some last minute Christmas gifts that are easy to make.
I have had one busy week. I wasn't planing to bake this year as we decided not to put up the Christmas tree or decorate the house and yard. Its been a rough year for us and with my daughter getting married and moving out. Im not feeling to Christmasy. But I was willing to make my husband home made Chocolate Chip Cookies. But he said "Honey, I would rather have Chocolate Covered Peanut butter ball" So that turned in to. Several days of baking this week with my friend Jill. (Usually its me and my daughter but not this year).
I ended up making, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Almond bark covered pretzels. Dipped pretzel logs, Butter Toffee bars, White and Semi sweet Chocolate Covered Peanut butter balls, Chocolate fudge and Peanut butter fudge. Some of these were new for me to make, so I have some new recipes to add to my Christmas recipe book.
I ran a box of goodies over to my Daughter and her husband in there new house. And ran some over to some of the kids friends. And when I got there, They gave a a box of fresh picked strawberries. From their strawberry farm, Yum! So good when fresh picked. That was so sweet of them.
So with that out of the way, Im ready to play with my new software MTC. (Make The Cut!) which is really awesome. I got a Cricut expression and gypsy for Christmas and needed some thing to cut to it. So I bought MTC, and then this week, I won a copy of SCAL2. Oh My! Which do I use now. Hmmm!.
I have to tell you, Im in love with how well the Expression cuts. I swear, You just click cut and let it go and it cuts like butter, And just pulls off the mat so clean, meaning no need to use a blade knife to trim up chads and stuff. Maybe now I will get more done.
So I needed some thing to put some gift cards in, So I made this stocking and thought it would be cool to make it lace up for a different look. I also love the Vintage Christmas look. So that was easy to do with the right paper.
You can resize this file to what ever side you need, just select both and resize at the same time. I cut 2 stockings and 2 tops. (One is flipped in the file) so you can cut both and just match wrong sides together.
You can use Ribbon to lace up the sides. I started at the top left and laced around to the Right, and tied in a bow. Then attached the top.
This file is free for Download for one week, I will take it down. Dec 26th. And this file is available in (AIv8, GSD 2.4, KNK, SVG, WPCv14 and MTC 2.3.2) Free Download RM00129 Password : iagreetou
This is my first file im offering in MTC format. So let me know if there is any thing I need to change with this file as Im learning this software.
How about a Smokey Kitten update. I swear I have never known a cat that likes water, I think I told you about how she plays in the water bowl, she jumps in the shower as soon as you open the door and she rolls all over and gets soaked, When you turn on the water to brush your teeth, She jumps in the sink and puts her head under the tunning water.
Now, lately she has been ambushing the other cats and little Chi Bandi at the water bowl. I told my husband the other day we were in the kitchen, and Bandit was at the water bowl. We have one of those 3 gallon water things for pets. Well, Bandit was drinking water and Smokey snuck up behind him and pushed his head in the water, A few minutes later, she did the same thing to Rusty cat.
Then, I had a glass of soda on the table where I keep my laptop. And Smokey jumped up there and decided she wanted a drink.
Always some thing new with Smokey around.
Well, hope you enjoy my free file. And have a wonderful weekend finishing up your holiday stuff.
Thanks for stopping by!
