Take Two Week {Day 2}

Welcome to {Day 2} of Take Two with Lisa Arana! Thank you so much for all your feedback yesterday. We're thrilled to entertain you with rolls of toilet paper. LOL Hopefully you will get the same giggles from today's set which is Pain and Pride by {ippity} for Unity. It's definitely not winter anymore. In fact, we skipped spring and went straight to a hot blazing summer so this image makes me feel a little cooler. When I am shopping for stamp sets, the sentiments are just as important as the images. If the sentiments aren't interesting, the images don't matter. This is one of those complete sets where every single sentiment will see ink! All I could think of when making this window scene was, "And then you have to come inside." HAHA You can see another card I made with this set HERE.

If you are new to Take Two, Lisa and I are featuring five different stamp sets, one each day this week. You have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 24th to comment on my blog and Lisa's blog for the week's posts. That gives you ten chances to win one of five stamp sets from Unity Stamp Company as well as two of Lisa's awesome watermarks! We will announce the winners on Monday, March 26th, 2012.

Now hop on over to Lisa's blog to see her take on Pain and Pride!

Stalker penguin? It looks a little like he's waiting out there to clobber ya ;) I love this sentiment since I actually say it to my kids pretty frequently. It's true - and once someone gets hurt, oh my goodness, the world is ending!

I love this window scene! Looking at it looks like it was a pain to color! :> Clever card Emily! I don't know I think Spring will be here just a nicer warmer spring. Today it's 12 here and a big rain storm last night! I keep hoping that if it's hot early all the outdoor pools will open early!
