Now to my card:)  I'm using the new alpha die set called Sassy Letters! Kim always designs the cutest, most unique letters!  For my first card, I paired the letters up with that adorable little chick from Spring Fling.  An fun (and super easy) card:)

 
I also made this quickie card using the entire set of letters.  Don't you love that "i"?  I colored my inlaid pieces with my copic markers to get the rainbow look.  Again, the letter dies make this super easy to do!


Now it's time for you to hop on over to the next stop on the hop, the amazing Jocelyn Olson!  

Mahalo,
jj
