Laugh a little...

TGIF my friends!

I'm heading back to the ol' grindstone but I hope you are getting to enjoy a few fun filled days full of sunshine and perhaps even a bit of crafting. :)

Did y'all check out the new Laugh line of stamps from CC Designs during preview week? If not, I highly recommend you run on over to the ATS store and check them out. If you ask me, Christine has really outdone herself with this new collection of stamps... they are SOOOO stinkin' cute! Don't get me wrong, I love her Swiss Pixies and Sugar Plums but these new Laugh girls are my all time faves of all Christine's wonderful designs. Each one has such character and personality and I totally think that they look like they could be their own cartoon on a channel like Nickelodeon. :)

My card today features Bee Laugh and her cheeky attitude with her cute little tongue sticking out really cracks me up. And as soon as I laid eyes on this sassy girlie I knew just the papers to use with her. This was the last line of Heidi Grace papers that I ever found once I heard that she wouldn't be designing scrappy products anymore (that was a sad day I tell ya) and the bee theme really looks like it was made to go with Bee Laugh. I couldn't resist fussy cutting one of the bees out of the paper so that she would have somebody to be blowing raspberries at... talk about cuteness!

Ok, time for me to scoot my boot... have a great one! :)

RiNNE said...

Ahahaha!! Too, too cute! You're so right about how much personality she has...love it!! That Heidi Grace pp is perfect and adorable! I just love how you're able to pick the cutest papers to go with the images! Which reminds me-- I had bought these pp w/ the words/images of 'nerds' and 'glee club' last week. They'd be perfect for the SOG stamp you showcased!! I forgot the brand but I'll let u know. When I saw 'glee club,' I thought "I wonder if Amy has this paper?". Heehee!! ;)
