Audrey‘s card is amazing! The Black Licorice Polka Heart Backdrop looks great with the white hearts peeking through! I love how she added the red hearts for bold pop of color and the Let’s Toast toaster pastries look so cute in happy pastel colors!

Megan‘s mini Let’s Toast cards are so adorable! She combined fun colors of cardstock for layering the Polka Heart Backdrop! She stamped some of the toast with ink colors (Grape Jelly, Pizza Crust and Cilantro) to look like jelly, peanut butter and avocado and included the punny Let’s Toast sentiments!

Elise‘s super cute circle cards are finished with Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames! She used a Polka Heart Backdrop as a stencil to add the bright hearts to the background!

Yainea‘s card design is so adorable! She used Say Cheese, Again frames for a picture perfect Let’s Toast card! She borrowed the greeting from Love You S’more!

I love Kay‘s super sweet mix of old and new sets! The cute Critters in the ‘Burbs look so happy in this idyllic scene with plaid grass, pretty Simply Celebrate flower border and a pink heart sky courtesy of Polka Heart Backdrop: Portrait!

Melissa‘s card is so elegant! I love her pink ombre inking on the Polka Heart Backdrop: Landscape and how cool it looks layered with the gold glitter cardstock! XOXOXO Line Border is a fun and simple greeting!

What could be better than rainbow inking? Rainbow inking on a Polka Heart Backdrop!! Latisha‘s card is bold, fun and so eye-catching! I love how she added the sweet Candy Heart and the Stitched Rectangle Frame!

Lizzy created a sweet card with our Black Friday exclusive set A Little Sparkle! I love how she inked the white Woodgrain cardstock with pink and layered it behind the navy Polka Heart Backdrop layer.

Elena‘s card is totally adorable and so sweet in soft pastel shades! I love how she kept the cutout Polka Heart Backdrop on the top portion of the card! That fun greeting combines Finley’s ABCs with the Let’s Toast sentiment!

  2. I haven’t smiled much lately as my mom passed away 3 weeks ago with cancer but I made some gingerbread men with my hubby and we decorated them together and that made me smile.

  3. Such a versatile and charming backdrop <3!
    My cats made me smile today, as they went back to bed, looking utterly adorable all cuddled up when we had to leave for work.

  4. And what made me smile today is something that makes my smile everyday.. My dog ( cosmo) and your intro vidoes. I watch them everyday in the morning while I drink tea and prepare myself for work( no matter how many times I have seen the same video before). They are very calming to me and I look forward to them. They are like my treat.

  5. Just love that heart background!! I see a lot of uses for that one in the future!! Can’t wait to get my hands on it!!

  34. Loving the new Polka Hearts backdrop dies, just like your other background dies, these add the right amount of interest and texture but don’t detract from the focal images!

Well, I currently have pneumonia, and we are living in temporary housing without most of our stuff so things are cramped and uncomfortable, so not exactly the happiest time for me, but my little dog came up to me earlier this morning, looked at me with his big beautiful brown eyes, smiled (yes, he smiles!) and proceeded to rub his cute little head against my legs until I leaned over and pet him. I love him so much! Dogs are just the best! So, THAT made me smile today BIG TIME, despite a collection of otherwise unhappy circumstances. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

    Love the heart polka dot background by the way and I’m really impressed that you positioned the hearts to fit your stitched rectangle stackables. What a great attention to detail Lawn Fawn has and that’s a little detail that is totally selling me on this new background die!

  60. I smiled when my 2 year old daughter looked so surprised at the branches falling into place as I put up our fake Christmas tree. It was priceless!

  63. Oh, i love the new polka heart backdrop dies!

  67. Oh my goodness, love this new release and all the inspiration!! I spent time with my grand babies today, they always make me smile!!

  68. Oh my god – i loved to see all the lawnfawn ink colors! They are all soo beautiful and unique. hard to pick favorites!

    So today I had to go to university (its about half an hour wit the train) and I went in a tiny restaurant where they serve soups they make entirely themselfs and always fresh with the best ingredients and toppings you can choose, every day 5 different soups so you never know what is on the menu. The soups are AMAZING and the prices are very fair and because of that at lunch time its always full of people. Even worse in winter when you can’t sit outside.
    So you kind of always have to sit with strangers to eat your soup. I usually don’t like to sit with strangers but as I said – the soup is amazing and not expensive. Usually I bring a book so eating “alone but not really alone” isn’t so uncomfortable but today I forgot it.
    So I bought my soup (its self-service) and asked a woman if I coul sit with her and she had such a BIG and kind smile and was so friendly (she said enjoy your meal, that never happens when i sit with strangers) I had to smile back and it felt warm in my heart and really made my day. We didn’t even talk afterwards but it was that kind of silence where no words are needed and you feel completely comfortable. I din’t even miss my book. When she was finished she said goodbye and I wished her an amazing day .

    And it was nice that this question “what made you smile today” was aksed, because of that I thought of it again and now it makes me smile again. It’s strange how sometimes a simple thing can make your day. And It’s nice to think back how the day was like and what made you smile, because you appreciate it even more ♥

  69. Nice inspiration today…can’t wait to see the release. One of my students made me smile…just his innocent reaction to the world around him.. Children are the best!

  70. Today, we had a practice for the local school’s Christmas program. They were so cute!! And they did such a great job!!! It made me smile. 🙂

  71. We are so fortunate to have such talented Lawn Fawn staff members. The recent creations for the new year are just “out-of-this world”. Thank you!

  72. Love the new colors of ink and the paper packs that hard to die cut is just so versatile. Working with some amazing stuff at my school made me smile today.

  73. i love the heart backdrop die! What made me smile today was seeing some lovely handmade crafts and finding a gift for a friend.

  74. I’m VERY excited about the Polkadot hearts! What makes me smile is my hubby who always supports me, and my kids. They’re all very creative too and are starting to show interest in crafty things 💖

  75. I sewed up a stuffed
    Llama and mailed it
    off today, after only
    using one day to
    make it! Made me
    Carla from Utah

  76. My younger daughter received an award at her school Presentation Day today – she has an intellectual disability so this was very special!

  77. I teach 3 year olds – I have a bazillion different reason to smile every day. Today I saw saw a cute little face smiling up at me with alfredo sauce all over it. LOL…he really liked lunch!

  78. The heart backgrounds are adorable! The reason I was smiling today is my doctor appointment went well, I did some Christmas shopping and went to dinner with a dear friend to have some much needed girl time. Great release Lawn Fawn!
