Lynnette‘s cute otter is on a tropical vacation! I love how she paired Year Five with Life is Good!

How cute is Elena’s card? I love the red balloon and how the Year Five sentiment fits in a speech bubble from A Birdie Told Me!


Nichol‘s shaker card is so cute! How fun is that sentiment stamped with Mermaid and Deep Sea Inks?!

Kristin‘s card is so fun! I love how she inked the Stitched Hillside Borders to create waves!

  12. My 16 year old found out her GPA is 4.25 as a sophomore and she is ranked 18th out of her class of 230!!! That made me sooooooooo happy. Then my baby dachshund biscuit flipped over on her back for me to rub her tummy and she looked just like the otter stamp in this set and I almost melted!!

  13. Otterly amazing cards and projects. Those are some foxy looking cupcakes and now I'm hungry for one. Do you give cupcakes away too? YUMMY!

  17. What beautiful cards. Love the design and the colors and the beautiful Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I just ordered and got you're Happy Birthday to you die and I just love it. What made me happy today was adding to my wish list the other lawn fawn stamps and dies I am saving up for. Also the beautiful sunshine today!

  18. Love love love all the ideas can't wait for the rest of inspiration week! So many things have made me happy today: my family, good health, the sunshine, a great cup of coffee, and of course your blog!

  19. Everything is so adorable! I am so in love with that little Otter. Think I'll call him Oscar! I am a Senior Caregiver. I was able to convince my Alzheimer's client to get out of bed and go outside today. That made me very happy!

  20. Happy Birthday! Love everyone's cards – so cute! What made me happy today – took my 6 year old granddaughter on a birthday shopping trip – it was simply fabulous! Love seeing the world through a little ones eyes,

  21. What made me happy today? Well, despite the fact it snowed most of the day, this IS the first day of Spring so that is a very happy thing! Also seeing these FUN cards by the talented Lawn Fawn design team! (I'm really looking forward to the video, but I will be patient.) 🙂 And finding "That Touch of Mink" (Doris Day & Cary Grant) on TV so I could listen to it while I was working around the house.

  22. This otter birthday stamp and die set is just so adorable. Just looking at all the cute cards made me happy. I love your post asking to comment about what made me happy today because it made think and I realized there were a lot of things. My favorite is that I had a whole day alone to craft.

  23. Otterly-cute!! I am happy that today is the first day of Spring! I went for a long walk with my pup and we both inhaled the fresh Spring air, and enjoyed not stomping around in boots and snow drifts!

  24. I love how the Happy Border can be manipulated and curved just like in Chari's card. I saw this die on sale at a local craft store but was afraid to buy it. It looks very intricate to me. But now, I regret not buying it.

  25. Hi Kelly Marie!
    Today's projects are so ADORABLE! What made me happy today…my two nieces just arrived from the mainland to visit (I live in Hawaii). Hope you have a "happy" day! 🙂

  26. Fabulous creations by everyone! Something that made me happy today was sitting back reflecting on yesterday because the family and I went to Disney. So thinking of all the fun we had yesterday was passed on to today and made me just as happy 🙂 I love it when memories are made and last days, months, and years to come!

  27. Oh such a cute little otter!!! Really adore all these pretty projects! Today would have been my grandfather's 82nd birthday… he passed away 6 years ago and so the celebration of his life and remember our memories with him is what made me happy today!

  32. I always get stuck in front of the otter enclosures at the zoo. They just make me happy. I saw on a documentary once that otters "play" to confuse the predators. Good lesson for us, play through your life and the bad stuff won't catch up with you! Love these cards!

  37. I love otters, they are so cute and I love how they lay on their backs and eat with their little hands. Gorgeous projects by everyone. I have been staying up very late the last few days trying to get some cards finished. This morning I had only been in bed a few hours when my son Max (8yrs) came in, gave me a big kiss and then left the room and shut the door, so I could sleep some more. He is the sweetest boy ever!!

  38. Fabulous projects; mega watt smile all over my face at seeing this. Happy today = start of two weeks of Spring Break! Yayyyyy!

  39. Today I am happy just because it's a beautiful day! The fact that I got new tables and storage for my craft room is totally helping!! I'm so happy and excited, no more clutter, now things have homes and my craft room looks fabulous!! Thank you, hope you are having a happy day!

  40. that little otter is precious! he sure does make me smile and the team has done so many wonderful things with him! 🙂

    I wasn't feeling well enough to go with my son and hubby to church this morning, and my son so kindly brought me a cookie home to make me feel better. he was so sweet to think of me! 🙂 that sure made my day!!!

  41. My husband made me happy today (and every day!) And even though I had a miserable LONG day at work I was happy that I have a job! This set is "otterly" adorible – thanks for a chance to win it!

  42. This otter is just too adorable beyond words. I've just started digi scrapping and finished 2 pages which makes me happy. Although there are somemore tweaking to go, I do like how the pages turned out.

  43. Today was a very happy day…my Grandkids came over and I was able to communicate with my daughter that is sailing to Australia. We met them in California in October and got to watch the live otters playing in the water…it was amazing. The otter stamps and dies are a true favorite!

  44. Oh my gosh that otter is just darling! We see them quite often here in Alaska so I definitely need to get this set!

    Today just sitting around being lazy and being home with my family made me happy!

  45. These cards are all otterly cute! What made me happy today was having lunch with a friend who is moving interstate for work. Not happy that she is moving but happy we could catch up.

  46. Planning my son's sixth birthday party made me smile today. He is at such a fun age. I can't wait to have all of his friend's over to celebrate next month! Love the new designs! All of you at Lawn Fawn always make me happy!

  47. Otters just make me happy and relaxed. Another thing that makes me happy, although not really relaxed, is being able to take my daughter and watch her as she does her extracurricular activities like gymnastics and Girl Scouts.

  48. What made me happy today is that my son got here from out of state to live here in Utah for awhile!! He brought his sweet wife and 3 cute girlies with him!!! Love them all so much and I am happy they are closer!!!

  49. The otters are adorable. My kitty snuggling up on me this morning made me happy. 🙂 It also momentarily kept her from clawing up the door frame!! Ha.

  50. Happy today… letting my 7yr old play extra time outside while ditching his Taekwando class for later in the week when it's going to rain.

  51. I get to have lunch with a dear friend today, and it will be so nice to catch up! The critters in this set are so cute! Love the playful use of the see-saw 🙂

  52. A date night with my husband made me happy on 3/19 when you published this post. This release is as adorable and fun as always! Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us.

  53. Wasn't sure I would like the otter, but after seeing this, I can see using it for so many adorable applications. You all do such a nice job bringing out the best in every single design. Like the 2 otters side by side… I'd be utterly lost without you… Oh my, how darling.

  54. Reading the inspiration posts is making me happy early on this gloomy, rainy day – a perfect bright & colorful pick me up!
    Have always loved otters – so cute – need to add that to my collection! And the happy birthday border is an ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE – LOVE IT!!

  55. This otter is so cute!! Love seeing all the projects where he is swimming on his back in the water!! Sleeping in today made me VERY happy today!! =) Too bad I was late for work!! EECK!!

  56. I have fallen in love with Lawn Fawn, I have made some cards with the life is good set and they are at a resort in Belize enjoying the warm sunshine! I cant wait to buy more sets so far I have 3 with the matching dies so far! I love these ones so much!
