Marine used Foxy Family to create the sweetest card to welcome a new baby! By combining Into the Woods Remix patterned paper and Textured Dot cardstock she gave this die cut scene lots of fun character!

Megan got really creative with Skinny Stripes Stencils and made this fantastic Platform Pop-Up card that looks like a waffle cone sundae! She stenciled the stripes on the base of the platform pop-up then she filled the top with fun I Scream, You Scream ice cream goodness!

Elena‘s card for mom is so special! I love how she framed the Foxy Family with a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Square Window and gave the foxes such beautiful detail! The flowers from Magic Iris Floral Wreath look so pretty!

Elise‘s fabulous birthday card is quick and easy to create! She stenciled colorful Skinny Stripes to make a pretty background then she added Giant Happy Birthday to You! The Stitched Rectangle Frame pulls it all together so nicely!

Grace’s 3D Shadow Box Card design is so amazing! She used lots of fun die sets to create this lovely little Foxy Family scene! I love the pretty pink Flower Market trees from the Shadow Box Card Park Add-On set. Then to fill in the scene she used Mushroom Border, and a cute bunny from Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-On.

Tammy added a bright and happy frame around her cute Rub-A-Dub-Dub scene using Skinny Stripes Stencils! I love how she coordinated the pastel colors of the background with the umbrella, so pretty!

Kara‘s Foxy Family mini slimline design is so lovely! She layered Gotta Have Gingham Rainbow paper with Apricot and Canned Pumpkin cardstock to coordinate with the colors of the foxes! Then she added a Slimline Picket Fence Border and flowers from Spring Flowers Backdrop to complete this special card!

Lynnette combined Party Balloons and Scripty Congrats on a Skinny Stripes stenciled background to create an amazing card! The warm color palette is so cheerful!

This beautiful Mother’s Day card is a combination of Foxy Family, Spring Flowers Backdrop and Lift the Flap Meadow. Grace added pretty color and a special greeting using Scripty Mom!

Mindy‘s colorful Mother’s Day card is sure to bring a big smile to any mom! The rainbow colors of the Skinny Stripes look so beautiful with the simple white Spring Flowers Backdrop! For the greeting, Mindy used Happy Happy Happy.

  49. My doctor smiled today when I told her how brave I was at the Emergency room when they stapled my head back together – without any numbing of the skull – as they do not numb – but I have to say – I only smiled when the stapling was finished not during the journey – but really, it wasn’ that bad! And today I smiled when my Doctor removed those staples – Yeah! one more week it will be completely healed!!

  50. I made my son smile by having his favorite homemade treat ready to surprise him, when he came home from school today.

  57. Made my neighbor smile and laugh when my dog wouldn’t continue his walk until he greeted her and her dog with lots of jumping and tail wagging!

  58. This is a good question, how have I made someone smile today? I suppose when I walked in to a local shop today, I smiled and said “Hi” first and that made the recipient do the same. When people see a smile it’s contagious and they can’t help but return it.

  59. I had to wait all day to comment until I did my action that made someone smile . And even then I only hope they smiled! I wrote something uplifting inside a card I had made and I taped in on one of the washroom doors at the gym just now. I hope that whoever finds it needed to read that message and that it will make them smile!!
    It’s the first time I do this and I think I am going to start doing it regularly…if anything it made ME smile!

  60. I made my 3 year old smile this morning by making him a funny face pancake with blueberry eyes and mouth, and a
    banana slice hair style!

  61. When I told our youngest student in class that we were going to see “Miss Paula” at the library she got really excited and said, “Yay!” I imagine she was smiling because we were wearing our masks. I also held her hand as we went up and down the stairs to the library because she is afraid of the “big” staircase.

  62. One of my co-workers thinks I am hilarious (I guess they like dry humor?) and I made them laugh. You can’t laugh without smiling too, right?

  63. I made a couple of classes smile by saying that I had been planning to give a quiz this week but instead I am going to combine this quiz’s topic with next week’s quiz and cut down on the # of quizzes. The kids were happy about that! I hope you had a great day!
    I love all the cards that were shared. I especially loved the shadow box card with the pink tree foliage from Grace and the beautifully colored foxes from Elena R. All of the cards are amazing – y’all just impress me SO much!

  64. Well, I made my coworkers smile and try not to laugh today when I was giving a health insurance customer service representative a very hard time on the phone while trying to get a billing issue resolved that has been plaguing me for a few weeks now. GORGEOUS DT samples! 🙂

  65. I made my co-worker smile showing her a picture of my grandson in his Spiderman costume, Spiderman shoes, and Spiderman helmet with his Spiderman bike! Do you see a theme!

  66. I always just smile at those I am interacting with and they usually smile back. Once in a while I try to be funny too! You never know you could just make someone’s day.

  73. I made my son smile when we were on a Duo call and I couldn’t figure out how to change the background to normal… I started pressing a bunch of things and kept changing different masks and hats, etc. B y the time I figured out how to get everything back to normal we were crying from laughing so hard!!!

  74. Today is my oldest daughter’s birthday, so it was very easy to make her smile — a variety of mini cupcakes and dinner at a favorite pizza parlor. 😀

  75. I played with my son in the backyard and he legit beat me at a basketball shoot out. He’s only 7 and I was trying, and he still won. That made him smile!

    Love all of the inspiration in today’s blog post!

  78. Today I asked my friends what if instead of getting upset at annoying drivers we yelled nice things at them. It totally made us laugh. “I like your hair!”, “I hope you have a wonderful day”. Spread kindness everywhere, why not? It doesn’t cost anything. This set is super cute.

  79. I made my son smile today by sending him a birthday card and setting up a brunch date this weekend with his family to celebrate. It will be the first time we’ve been back to a restaurant in two years and I can’t wait!

  83. I love these!! That rainbow Mother’s Day card is amazing. I made someone smile today. I saw a friend of mine that I haven’t seen in almost a year due to the pandemic, even though we work at the same place. So good to see her and get a hug!

  84. By smiling at someone, they’ll normally return the smile – out walking, I like to smile or say hello to people that are oncoming and 99.9% of the time the response is reflected (the only time it’s not, is usually people with ear pods and they didn’t hear you)

  85. Love, love, LOVE the Foxy Family and the striped stencils!

    The design teams’ projects are all so cute, but WOW, Grace’s 3D Shadow Box Card stands out as being particularly AMAZING! The colors are so beautiful, and all those pretty details are so inspiring. I really enjoyed looking at all these fantastic designs.

    re making someone smile, I’ve been busy leaving comments on projects people uploaded to the gallery at I have no way to know if that has actually made anyone smile, but here’s hoping so!

  86. I sent a text to my friend this morning with Happy Birthday wishes and a cute picture to go along… So I hope that made her smile 🙂

  87. Those foxes are adorable! Also really like the skinny stripes. I made someone smile today by giving them a card to help perk them up.

  89. I was able to take my grandson’s first pair of glasses to him yesterday. When he put them on for the first time and realized he could see better, his smile and excitement made me smile!

  91. I took my deceased mother’s husband out for a walk today. It lifted his spirits (and mine too!). While walking, I couldn’t help but smile at all my fellow walkers, and everyone smiled right back. A great start to the day!

  92. I find humour in almost everything, so it’s easy for me to make someone smile. Just yesterday I re-quoted “They said all I need for shopping during Covid is a pair of rubber gloves and a mask. They were wrong. Everyone else had clothes on.” Bwwaahhhaa.

  93. I made my kid smile today by telling her I ordered the latest Spiderman movie. She really loves them! Plus her initials are MJ……
