CASology Challenge - Kindness

Hi there blog friends! I've been MIA enjoying Christmas with my family, and it's been a blast! If I haven't visited your blog lately, please be patient...I promise to get caught up asap :) 

CASology is hosting a 2-week challenge and their cue card is 'Kindness'. Since I'm lucky enough to have the MFT Kindness die, I was eager to play along ~

These beautiful leaves are from the MFT Geometric Greenery stamp set and I thought they would work well with the camouflage die cut technique. I used pink and gray (my favorite color combo) and added the 'r' to the sentiment with a fine marker. A wonky stitched border and a few sequins, and this puppy was done and dusted :)

Here is a close up:

As the year comes to a close, I want to thank you all for your sweet comments and wonderful heartfelt, friendships! How blessed we are to have such a great hobby ~ 
I wish everyone a New Year filled with love, peace, and good health!
