Looking for Greener Grass

There is something very sweet in this stamp. From the biggest to the smaller they work together to give Mr Big Pig a chance to look for the greener grass. 

Got this stamp from eBay years ago, but unfortunately never got the front part. Never mind, this is such a beauty anyway. Not the first time I made this to a card :) 

All farm animals like spring and yay! will get out and enjoy sunshine, nice warm promise of summer and want to wonder around. (Clearly I have no idea of real farm life, but here we go!)
