I have never seen any stamps featuring a sloth before Kathy but no wonder you couldn't wait to use them as it is so so cute and you have coloured it beautifully, and with a fun sentiment. I love the sepia tones of the ATC too which give it a great vintage look, and such a pretty yellow border and blue glittery star, and your cocktail looks good enough to Cheers! x

Brilliant - hic! Thought it was a shaker card at first - brilliant! I did giggle at the Playmate comment that they've not seen a sloth stamp before, so sweet!
