Greetings from a Whittle Sloth

The newest release from Poppystamps included a Whittle Sloth!!  I don't think it could get any cuter! What a charming face!

Since the pandemic, my mother-in-law has been staying home.  She has always been a very busy, very extroverted lady. Even in her mid-80s, she volunteers for multiple organizations.  But besides her age, she has other conditions that are keeping her home.  She won't even let us visit. It's a small thing but I get a card sent out to her at least once a week.  I know she appreciates them because she has sent me pictures of her very full fireplace mantle. A card in the mailbox is a change of pace to the long hours.  But it occurred to me recently that most of my cards for her have been florals or leaves.  It was time to change it up.  And I picked the sloth for her!

I created a leafy, floral background for my sloth.  (The flowers are poinsettias but in bright colors, they looked tropical to me!)  The branch is actually the Swaying Birch. I trimmed a few branches off and added some Orchard Leaves. Then right in the middle of all of it - this happy Whittle Sloth.  I think my mother-in-law will get a chuckle out of this.

I added a frame mainly because it gave the leaves on the branch some fun dimension.  I also brushed on a bit of blue ink for the sky.  The flowers have some glitter paper for their centers. I wanted the background to have a very cheerful look to be just right the sloth.

A list of everything I used is below.  I hope he made you smile!
