  22. This blog post definitely put a smile on my face! We have some great pictures of manatees from a vacation in the Florida Keys. We were swimming off the dock one morning and all of a sudden a mama manatee and her little one showed up and swam with us – that is one of my best memories and this die set brought it all back! I cannot wait to get this set and put together some more scrapbook pages with it!

  23. So much neat inspiration for water-themed card techniques from all of these posts! Loving them! Having my preschooler jump into my lap this morning with a big hug and say, “Mommy, I love you SO much!” That, added to several hours of uninterrupted craft time (a Mom’s Day gift from the hubs!) absolutely made my day and made me smile!

  24. Love this set! We attempt to see manatees every time we visit Florida. Today is my birthday and the love and wishes I’ve received have put a huge smile on my face!!

  30. This whole release makes me smile! I have always enjoyed Lawn Fawn, but I recently “re-discovered” the stamps and started using my Copics more again too and it’s just like a whole new world of fun! It’s really made me expand out of my usual layout and make scene cards again, so that in itself makes me incredibly happy! Also, LOVE those stitched wave dies, cannot wait for those! (but I think that means I may need to add a few older sets to the wishlist now.., like the Ahoy Matey

  34. I had to smile today when I saw all those cute manatees when I woke up. Tried to see one in real live while diving, but had no luck, so manatee is still on the wish list.

  39. My mother, who has moderate memory loss, was trying to tell me of a funny show she saw on tv, with “that guy, you know, the one who sings..and goes around doing crazy stuff.” She couldn’t remember who it was. Then all of a sudden she pops out, “Bradshaw!” I said, “Terry Bradshaw?” and she said, yes, and she was so happy she remembered him….then she told me some details of the show (which is “Better Late Than Never” where Terry Bradshaw, George Forman, Henry Winkler and William Shatner travel around and get into all kinds of shenanigans). She was so happy she remembered, and I was happy too. It definitely made me smile.

  40. The manatees are so cute! They make me smile… but also… it sunny outside this morning and the birds are singing! Definitely a happy day!

  45. Oops hit enter before i left an answer…. Seeing my 16yr old daughter go off to her first gcse exam with a smile on her face made me smile 😀

  46. So glad you’ve shown me how to use the grassy hillsides as sand. Love getting more out of the dies I already have. Thanks for the inspiration. Look forward to placing an order on release day but you make it so hard to choose which sets as they are all so beautiful.

  47. The stitched wave borders are awesome! I love border dies, they make a quick and easy background.

  66. These manatees are tooooooo cute!!! What fabulous cards, too! I was rereading the card my youngest daughter gave me for mother’s day yesterday. She’s nine and it was a fill in the the blanks type card. It was cute to see what she wrote (with a couple funny spellings.) It definitely made me smile!

  67. It’s early in the day so there’s not been a lot to smile at so far.
    However, I was happy to see the weather forecast and this
    heat wave is going to break and we’ll go back to nearer
    normal temperatures. I’m still able to keep the windows open –
    that makes me smile. Didn’t want to shut them yet – it’s been
    a long winter cooped up in the house – need fresh air.
    thanks for listening to me vent.
    P.S. the manatee’s are darling.

  68. I love the colors in Kay’s card–so bright and happy and summery! That definitely made me smile today. 🙂 Can’t wait to get my hands on this set!

  69. Smiling about the waves addition. We have hills, grass, snow and clouds. Seems like we were waiting for waves and here they are!

  70. it’s my best friend’s birthday today. she lives across the country, but she is visiting on vacation so we’re having a great time!

  71. Such great cards!!! Love the stitched wave die!!

    I was smiling as I walked home from dropping my Kinder at school. The sun was shining and it was warm enough for me to take off my jacket. Also, I found my Kinder’s jacket in the lost and found pile. I’m excited to watching a curbing machine go down our street – closer to the construction being done and SIDEWALKS!!! I also have a couple of friends coming over for chatting and coloring tonight. 🙂

  72. LOVE the Manatees and the stitched waves! Awesome additions to the LF line! Excited about the new items!
    My cat, Coco, makes me smile! She often sleeps with me, and this morning was curled up right next to me.

I smile because I have a wonderful job with outstanding coworkers, and I smile because we work in an office environment that encourages us to celebrate each other! 🙂

  76. These are soo adorable!!! What made me smile today was having some extra time to cuddle with my 5 month old before i went to work 🙂

  78. watching kids play in mud puddles always makes me smile I cant wait for the manatee stamps and dies

  79. This set is on my must have list. I really love Chari’s card, Jenn’s card & the one that stands out the most to me is Latisha’s card. I love the water colors she used & the softness of the card! Great job to all of the DT for awesome cards!
    I smiled when I kissed my husband this morning before work!

  80. Eek those Manatee’s are so incredibly adorable! What made me smile today was thinking someone was one of my friends and so I was sassy to her and then she turned around and I realized it wasn’t my friend. Well…luckily my sassyness was appreciated and now I have a new friend. haha.

  81. Wow! These are so cute! What made me smile today was actually a dentist. It isn’t that I didn’t have any work done. I finally got my front tooth taken care of. It went very well and was probably the best dental appointment I have ever had. The assistant was excellent at keeping gunk from going down the back of my throat and made sure not to drown me(yes, I have had both those happen before). I have also gotten to taste novacane shots many times. Which is disgusting. It was such a good experience that I will probably keep my dental appointments from now on instead of putting them off until I am in pain. I also liked that my exrays showed up on a big screen tv right in front of me so I could see them immediately as they were taken. That there is nice tech. Also as he was checking my mouth, he took pictures of the teeth and they showed on the screen so I could see the condition of my own teeth. I know that is weird to be happy about, but for me it is a huge deal.

  82. I was so busy looking at the adorable manatees (that I have been so excited & anxious to see) that I almost missed the cool wave dies.

  83. Loving the stitched wave borders. So I’ve been checking out each day for the new product announcements but today, starting from the beginning I looked at everything again and have to say the Critter Concert stamps brought the biggest smile – they make me think of happy times with music.

  84. Love these borders. My happy thought for the day is the lawn Fawn gift certificate I got for Mother’s Day and the new goodies I can buy with it

  85. Love water critters, especially hippos, but manatees are up there.What made me smile today, truthfully, was my ex coworker emailed me today describing someone as kooky….now if that is a bad kooky or good kooky WHO KNOWS? 🙂

  86. The manatees are adorable! But…I can’t wait to see the Shadow Box Ocean add on!!! You keep showing hints of it and I’m dying to see the whole set!

  87. The manatee are just adorable. Must have them. My daughter made me smile this morning when I saw her. She came for a visit and I’m enjoying her company.

  88. Another fun stamp set and dies! Just add them to the “manatee” things I have on my wish list. 😉 One thing that made me smile today is that the hibiscus my kids have me for Mother’s Day started to bloom this morning and it is spectacular.

  89. How adorable and sweet <3 Love this set ! My kids always make me smile ,but also and sometimes they make me pull my hair lol but today was a good day we made fruit salad and spend a lot of time together and they said that today was the best day 🙂

  90. Those manatees are so so adorable! And that’s what made me smile today, was seeing their cute little faces on these awesome projects! 😀

  91. My sweet hubby made me smile today. I love the adorable manatees and the sentiment, “Let’s Shell-abrate”. So cute!!

  92. The Manatees are so cute & I love the Stitched Wave Borders. Those are pretty awesome😊 Today I was rummaging around YouTube & found an old clip of Whose Line is It Anyway. That made me lol. I loved that show & I have happy memories of watching it with my sister & just laughing so much.

  93. Love the manatee set – I know I’ll have to get that set! And the cards made are so pretty!
    And wow! Did I smile after seeing that stamped image!

  107. I teach elementary school and one of our students said such a funny thing that I couldn’t help but smile.

  108. I’m surprised you didn’t ask what our favorite animal was, or the one we did reports on at school (mine was often a snow leopard). My sister was very patient with me today, which made me smile.

  109. The little manatee are adorable. I love the variety of projects you have displayed. They are all so cute and pretty!

  113. Hearing my daughter this evening when she called to let me know that her school trip was going great and who all would be in her room with her.

  114. This question was easy! Today I both smiled and laughed at my audio-book – “Miss Seeton Sings.” I like books that make me smile and laugh, even if they aren’t officially ‘comedy’ books.

  141. Such cute manatees! A lady at the pharmacy made me smile today. She went out of her way to find a coupon for an expensive prescription I had to get. She got it to work at the last minute and was jumping up and down when it worked! I love people who really try to help others in their work.

  142. Well in addition to these super cute manatees, what made me smile today was my sweet dog Frito. He’s the best friend anyone could ask for and he sits up on his hind legs to beg for treats and does the cutest things that you just have to smile at.

  143. What made me smile this morning, was to hear my favourite birds, the black cockatoo. I was running over to the window just in time to see 8 screeching black cockatoos flying over!

  144. All these cards is so beautiful and inspirational!!
    love everyone’s creation!!
    Especially Latisha Yoast’s card!!

  145. Love these manatees! Those stitched wave borders are to die for! I have seen a lot of others, but these are so. Beautifully designed…love the shape of them! A must have!

  146. Today it was noticing hubby did something for me without me expecting it, letting me know he thinks about me when he’s out. Makes me realize how lucky I truly am. I adore this cute manatee set.

  147. These mantee are so adorable and they really put a smile on my face, just like my little rescue dog Jake. Every morning he wakes me with a kiss and it starts my day off in the best way!

  148. Today my dogs were playing chase in the yard and it was super adorable and funny so it made me smile a lot!

  149. Yainea and chari moss really are my favourite designers, all they do looks super awesome! I love these stitched waves! you can so perfecly use that for the pop up and shadow box card. I tried making waves once, it didn’t look so good. I’d be glad to have the stitched waves instead ♥

    My boyfriend made me smile today. He wasn’t even by my side, I was just thinking of him and grinning like a cheshire cat. And it’s not a new relationship, we’re together for more than ifve years and still i feel so in love I have to smile and grin without a specific reason. It’s cheesy I know 😀

  150. When my son was little we went to Florida and he loved the manatees. At the aquarium he was able to pet one. He was so excited.

  151. LOVE these ADORABLE manatees … they make me smile 🙂
    The birds in our garden made me smile too … one was merrily perched on the edge of the bath, splashing away, another impatient one got sick of waiting, so went underneath it and grabbed it by the tail and tugged it down 🙂

  152. Looking at these wonderful new stamp sets & dies! And the fact that I don’t work tomorrow & our new fridge is being delivered… It’s very challenging to live out of a cooler!!!

  153. I’m such a fan of your ocean themed sets (that pink water coloured manatee has my heart). They all go together so well… I’m picturing a tri-fold card with an EPIC underwater spread – perfection!!

  154. What made me smile today was waking up to my kitten right on my chest licking my face. She’s just so cute and fluffy; it’s always a welcome wake up call. 🙂

  155. Cute! My youngest (almost 2) made me smile this morning as she was trying to convince her daddy to stay home today from work by standing in front of the garage door saying “ da-ee, home”

  156. What made me smile is seeing all these cute new stamps and dies. What makes me sad: 1 more sleep until I can order!

  157. The shadow box idea was well thought out. Very creative. Those manatees made me smile today and yesterday.

  158. I love this stamp set! The manatees are so adorable! Today, my kitty made me smile! He actually does every day because he follows me around the house no matter where I go. He acts more like a dog.

  159. the watercoloring is sublime!!! wow!
    those manatee are the cutest ever… i am such a sucker for lawn fawn critters LOL
    loving the waves. 🙂

  160. Oooo, these manatees are so sweet! They remind me of a special trip to Florida 10 years ago when I first saw one and they made me smile 🙂

  161. The manatee set is by far my favorite in this release… they are soooo stinkin’ cute! My silly little Papillon made me smile… she is always chasing lizards in the backyard (but thankfully rarely catches them). Today she came back into the house with the silliest grin on her face since she chased 3 of them all over the place… she thought it was best fun!
