That's Carole Lombard and Clark Gable in Feg Murray's popular syndicated comic, "Seein' Stars" (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/263176.html). But here's something you might not have known about the series (and I didn't know until recently): As part of the panel, on several occasions Murray created a side item -- commemorative (non-adhesive) "stamps" that fans could collect and put in their Hollywood albums. Each stamp measured approximately 2 1/8" x 2 3/8".
Lombard appeared in two of the three stamp series. Her image was #13 of the third series, and ran on Dec. 1, 1940:
This was the only series of the three that was in color, appearing from September 1940 to August 1942 for a total of 100 stamps. Here are a few others, beginning with Carole's two husbands, William Powell and Clark Gable:
My second and third favorite classic-era actresses, Myrna Loy and Barbara Stanwyck:

The only other stamp appearance for Lombard came in the second series, when "Seein' Stars" was also a daily feature, running from January to October 1938 for a total of 224 black and white stamps. Lombard was #36, and ran on Feb. 11, 1938:
