  1. Oh, the design teams cards just get better and better! My favourite exotic animal has to be the Panda, although my hubby says they always look like men in panda suits even the ones we saw in Washington Zoo :D. Debra x

  2. Hmmm… I've never given much thought to exotic animals. I do love watching the animal shows though where they show the "big" cats in their natural habitats.

  3. I have thought this Sloth guy is hysterical since the first time I saw him. What a crack up critter image. Love it!

  4. Love the grassy hills dies! My favourite exotic animal would be difficult to choose. I love all the interesting creatures. Possibly tapirs or iguanas but I love giraffes and elephants and rhinos and meerkats too. How can such beautiful creatures not all be your favourite!

  5. These cards are so adorable!! My favorite exotic animal is the tiger, I've loved tigers since I was a little girl. When I was younger I had many tiger plushies and toys. I also really adore silkie chickens (hey, their an exotic type of chicken;)

  6. My favorite exotic animal is the panda. Your sloth is pretty darn cute, though. The sloth in Zootopia was very funny. Seeing as my cards are sometimes slow getting to the recipient, this guy is for me. LOL

  7. I ordered this on and just received last week. Thanks for creating such great cards, hands down the best! Now Elise's kookuburra made me want to add that stamp set to my collection! The wood grain stamp added too.
    Now for the exotic animal…I am going to say a cheetah since I have not seen anything not baby related for these magestic creatures. I could see it used for graduation, illness and hurry back I miss you cards!!

  8. My favourite exotic animal is the elephant. I love their majestic nature. I adore this stamp set. The sloth is adorable and this set has the best variety of sentiments!

  9. Hi Kelly! I'm comment number 77, wow!! We love sloths, they are so adorable! Thank you so much for the fun party yesterday at Stamp Fever! I wanted to send you a link to my pinterest page with all my favorite Lawn Fawn cards. The two I mentioned yesterday are the first one in on the top row and the second one in on the third row! We bought the Tombo "bubble" tape runner afterwards and on Monday we'll get some of the Neenah 90lb weight paper, yay (you taught me so much!!!) I can't wait to make my jelly bean shaker card today with all the goodies I bought yesterday! You guys are so awesome! I hope you are managing to have a few hours of R&R time today before the rain starts up again next week! Big hugs! Kathy

  10. Well certainly in the exotic bird category I like flamingos, pelicans and toucans, but in the mammal category I'm fond of baboons, gorillas and monkeys of all kinds.

  11. It's a toss up between a tiger and a panda.
    I love how all your sets are so well thought out! It's been wonderful to see all the design teams' inspirations.

  12. It actually is the sloth. I made sure to pre-order this 'Hang in There' set as soon as I could. This weekend at our craft retreat I made 27 thank you cards using that cute little sloth in this set! I love it.

  13. Hang in there is a good motto to live by.
    You may be having a bad day but keep at it
    and it will get better.
    My exotic animal favorite is the Elephant.
    I have a collection of them – in all kinds
    of poses and materials.
    Got to see lots of them when I went on safari
    in 2011.
    thanks for the sneak peek.

  14. My favorite exotic animal is a koala bear. They are so unique and cute! I've loved them since I was a preteen and that's been a while now, no comments please. 🙂 Thanks again to the ladies. I love looking at all the different ways the same dies and stamps can be used. The more ways they are used the better. If they are used in a unique way, and are very versatile, I am more likely to purchase them. I love all Lawn Fawn stamps though. If I did buy all the ones I like, which is all of them, we'd be broke for sure!

  15. Sloths are so cute! What wonderful cards. I love the one being carried away by balloons. 🙂 I love all kinds of exotic animals, but big cats (jaguars, cheetahs, etc.) are tops on my list.

  16. These designs featuring the VERY SLOW sloth on belated birthday cards are so much fun! And the "hang in there" cards are also perfect for these animals that spend most of their lives hanging from tree branches!
    My favorite exotic animals are koalas. They seem to be cuddly and gentle-natured. But I really like a lot of animals!

  17. Awesome designs by the DT, the sloth is so cute!! And as a fan of the domestic ferrets, I have to say my favorite exotic animal is their cousin the wild Black Footed Ferret!

  18. Wonderful DT cards and fun designs. My favorite wild animal would be a panda. I like the elegance of the black and white and they look so cuddly; at least in pictures. In the wild and up close and personal it might be a different story. LOL! Have a wonderful day!

  19. Lovely cards!Well done to all the DT members!
    My favorite exotic animal is the lion…but I also like all big cats as well as pandas (cause they are super cute)!

  20. The sloth is sooo cute! I just love him. My favorite exotic animal would be the koala as they are so fluffy and cute. I held one in Australia and loved it.

  21. Great cards…I LOVE the Sloth. The Stripey Background looks cool. Love how you incorporated the tree with the Sloth on the branch. Well done on all.
    My FAVE Exotic animal is the Giraffe! They just amaze me!
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  22. Love the giraffe – I just had a up CLOSE encounter with one at Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach (Florida). I stood on a platform and they come right up to me (face to face) and I got to hand feed it lettuce. AMAZING!!!

  23. So cute! I am not sure what constitutes an exotic animal but I am going to say a Panda! There is a strange rap song "Panda" that is now sort of an inside joke for my hubby and I. Weird answer, huh? 🙂

  24. My favorite exotic animal is a panda b/c they are so cute. Your adorable sloth reminds me of the sloth scene in the movie Zootopia which made laugh and laugh.

  25. It's impossible to pick one favorite. Meerkats and river otters are especially fun to watch frolicking about though. This sloth set is very cute and I love what all the designers have done with it.

  26. My favorite exotic animal would have to be parrot, in particular Galah Cockatoos. Pink and grey little feather fluff balls they are *^-^*.
    I really love this stamp set. It's just so stinkin' cute. ❤

  27. I love the sloth set he is so adorable!! My favorite exotic animals are large cats ocelots, jaguars, panthers they are so majestic 🙂

  28. My favorite exotic animals are koalas and pandas. I think they are so adorable! I love this new sloth set!!

  29. Oh what adorable creations. That sloth is so cute! My favorite exotic animal…..Do Elephants count? I love many kinds of animals (all really….lol) but Elephants are my heart ♥

  30. I guess I just like cute…pandas are the first exotic animal I thought of…and they look adorable! The samples for the Sloth stamp set are wonderful!👏🏻

  31. These sloth cards are so super adorable!!!
    I actually have several exotic animals that are my favorites. The Snow Tiger, Then my husband and I raise Exotic Pheasants. Red Goldens, Elliots, Swinhoes, Slivers, Yellow Goldens, Reeves, and then we have a few birds that live inside with us an African Grey and 2 Goffin Cockatoos.

  32. I don't know if they count as exotic or not, but my favorite is the bald eagle! I had never seen one in the wild until last year, when there were *two* of them on our farm for two days! 🙂

  33. Ugh this stamp set is too adorable for words!! I love how everyone has colored the adorable little guy too – all the heart eyes!!

    As for exotic animals I have to say I really think I love the platypus. They're all weird and cute!

  34. Such adorable sloth cards! And that grass die is fantastic – So many possible uses! Are elephants considered exotic animals? They've been my favorite for a loooong time (along with dogs, not considered 'exotic' per se, but I am able to own one of those AND keep it in my house! LOL! 😉 ) Thanks for the chance to win!

  35. I love Rain Forest animals…blue morpho butterflies, red-eyed green frogs, howler monkeys, and sloths (Have you read Eric Carle's "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," said the Sloth?)!!! Your sloth is adorable!

  36. Hmmmm…. favorite exotic animal. Do unicorns and pegasuses (pegasi?) count? Because they're definitely my favorite. As far as standard exotic animals go, I am a big fan of wolves and snow leopards. 🙂

    Have to admit, though, this set is turning me into a fan of sloths, too!

  37. I love all of the cards today, especially Yainea's peek-a-boo scene card! Love it! Hard to pick a favorite "exotic" animal… I adore all animals in their own way. The first one that comes to mind are snow leopards. Just beautiful, and so well adapted to it's environment.

  38. Oh my gosh, this sloth is so, so CUTE! These cute slow creatures are my youngest daughter's favorite! I really love toucans. Thanks for the super cute card ideas! Can't wait to get this stamp & die set for my daughter as an Easter gift.

  39. Cute cards. I love all the coloring variations of the little sloth. My favorite exotic animal is a kangaroo (with a baby in it's pouch)or an ostrich.

    How could I not answer sloth? They are such cool creatures, so fascinating with their algae growing on their fur … and fun too, thinking of Zootopia brought another smile to my face 🙂

  41. This stamp set is adorable 🙂 My favorite exotic animal? Wow, I don't have one, but probably leopards, jaguars, tigers, all cat kinds of animals.

  42. I love Lions, Tigers and Snow Leopards. Oh My! But if i Have to choose my favourite it would be Snow Leopards. Their coats are beautiful and the grace they have at hunting it amazing. The Sloth stamp set is very cute. I loved all the different ways it was used today.

  43. SO happy to see a sloth in the Lawn Fawn collection!!! My favorite exotic animal would be the lion. They are so majestic and truly kings (queens) of the jungle!

  44. I love this sloth!! I had to have him. My favorite exotic animal — okay, not too exotic actually. I like chinchillas! And jackalopes! (I was so thrilled when you made a stamp and die for that!) The DT made really great cards!

  45. I have seen an actual sloth in Costa Rica and it was such an amazing animal to watch. We were standing very close, watching him go down a tree at such an incredibly slow pace… I'll never forget!
