Petunia & Penny - Stampingbella

Hi and I hope you are well and all is fine.  I'm afraid it's very close to officially winter here but I've been hoping it's not so.  We got a huge dump of snow the day after Hallowe'en and yesterday was so cold!  I don't like it when it begins this early because it means 5 months of winter and I'm good if winter is only a month... I wish!
Anyway, my card today is Stampingbella's Petunia & Penny Take a Break and I must say, I have always favoured these little pigs.  There's a sketch for this week's Bellarific Friday and I love doing sketches because all the thinking is done for me but for the first time in ages, I made what in my opinion was the ugliest card ever!  I used purple as my main colour and everything that could go wrong did and I just wasn't happy with it so I started over and I am much happier with this one.
Here's the sketch:
Okay, I'm off... I think I'm going to do some baking today, some nice sweet little squares and get a head start on the Christmas baking.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

This is fabulous Marilyn... but I bet the one you weren't happy with was too! LOL! I LOVE how you coloured these little piggies and gave them a cloud background.. then you did the sentiment on that tag which is placed perfectly... something I can never quite achieve!

Did you get it in to Emily in time for the challenge? I know the collection closed today...

Big hugs
