Nice to See You Petunia - Stamping Bella

This is Petunia the Pig and probably one of my favourite stamps.  I don't often use a stamp more than once (another reason why each of my cards costs about $99 to make...) but I've used this little oinker a couple times because it's so cute.  I love the 'missing U's' in the sentiment... so clever and those funky, retro glasses just crack me up!  I'm entering this in Stamping Bella's Bellarific Friday which for this week, is a sketch:

Well if that isn't the cutest ever! Love those glasses they are all wearing. And the DP is perfect.

Laugh, laugh, laugh and one big smile. You have hit the spot with this Marilyn. I have always loved pigs (and a good pork roast)! I would dearly love to own a little Tea Cup Pig. I think the real ones are horribly expensive.

I can hear you petal. He really is a cutie, one I wish I had ordered when I bought my other stamps. Now I must wait till our dollar recovers but I do enjoy every time to do a card with the pig and his friends. So so cute.

Maxine D said...

Super cute Marilyn, and I do love the little birds with their glasses too. The detail that utterly blew me away was the heart cut out of the banner that you re-adhered off centre!

Sue said...

Heidi Brawley said...

OMG I totally LOVE your card!!!! The Petunia line of stamps at Stamping Bella are my fave .....more so because we own a mini pig. His name is Bufford and his coloring is like an oreo cookie. I only own 1 of the Petunia stamps and that it the one getting a piggy back ride on the little girl!!!! I was going to play along in the sketch challenge this week but.....I got side tracked with TV with hubby since new season shows started up this week. I have a job that I work 40 hours a week at my crafting time is limited.
hugs, Heidi

I love the cute details on here too; the bling on the glasses and the heart detailing are just so sweet.
