Smile and Laugh

Hello friends!
I hope that you are having a lovely weekend and getting lots of fun crafty time in. :)

I'll be at work today but before I head out I wanted to share another of the new Laugh girls from CC Designs. This is "Laugh" and again, I made this card for the CHA show booth back in July. I was so excited to work with these new images from Christine as soon as I saw them! Now I keep pestering her to add more to the collection 'cause I'm totally addicted to their quirky, cartoony, cuteness! And those perfectly coiled curls are so much fun to color... they remind me of when I was little and watching "Little House on the Prairie" after school, I was always so jealous of Nellie Olsen's bouncy curls, LOL!
Yes, yes, I'm a complete nerd and I totally own that. ;)

Anywho, back to the card... I paired this little cutie up with some Doodlebug prints that I actually recycled from cutting up one of their old catalogs. I love me some Doodlebug but they have a very specific look that can be hard to work with some of my stamps. But I'm happy to report that they are a wonderful match for Laugh here. I keep saying it but I think it is because she looks like she could be a cartoon character. There's also another Kid Quote stamp on this one (I'm addicted to them) and I accented the card with one of the Laugh Line Postage Stamps which I think just adds to the cuteness.

Well, I guess I should go... thanks so much for stopping by today! :) Supply list:
