The Very Sleepy Sloth - Part III

I could have written about this card in time for Valentine's Day but I wanted, no needed, to ask Mister Handmade in Israel's permission before I showed it to the world. It does rather poke fun at him! Fortunately he has a good sense of humour and he loved the card.
Mister Handmade in Israel loves to sleep. I have made cards for him on that theme before. The kids particularly liked this one and still giggle when they talk about it. Sloth's love to sleep too. When our boys were young we used to read them a sweet book called "The Very Sleepy Sloth". Sloth sleeps a lot. His favourite thing to do is to take a nice, peaceful nap. But the other jungle animals are very busy and very noisy. Kangaroo is always jumping on her trampoline; Elephant is always lifting weights. However, Monkey finds out the hard way that he’s no good at lifting weights, and Elephant can’t jump on the trampoline very well. The animals learn that everyone does something best - and Sloth’s best talent is sleeping!
It's one of Mister Handmade in Israel's talents too, so a sleepy sloth, based on Sid the ground sloth from the film Ice Age, a family favourite, went on to his Valentine's card.
It may not have been the most romantic card ever but I did try to make it a little bit lovey-dovey by adding a few red and pink love hearts. Fortunately Mister Handmade in Israel's Valentine's gestures were far more romantic than mine...

There are a few grown-up ardent iceage fans in my family who would love a card like this!

Hehe! The card is adorable! Sloths always look so happy. I'm sure your husband got a kick out of it! Your flowers are beautiful. I hope they stay for a long time. :)
