Good morning everyone. 
     TGIF!  I have to work tomorrow, but I am hoping to get some swimming in and a lot of crafting done once I get home at 1pm.   Yesterday was my half day at work and I did get some errands done,  but then by 5pm I was so tired that I actually took a two hour nap.  lol... I think that while our  walks and swimming are great but along with work and spending time with my kiddies is really taking it's tole on me this week.   I am just so tired and I really hate taking a nap or being unable to do what I have in my mind to get done.  Don't like to waste time sleeping.  lol....  I know I am weird, but I really do love the early morning and the late night.   I guess once you hit 45 your body doesn't care what your mind wants.  The body wins....  
      Ok, I will quit complaining and get on with it so that we can head out on our morning walk.  (I slept in yesterday until 6 and didn't walk.  :O(  Oh well.)  Anyway my card today is yet another 'Thank you' card for the M&M's to give to a friend of mine that gave them both a wonderful gift for their Birthdays. I decided that I loved how much my body swapping worked that I would try another. This time I used WS-Ebony and CC-Leslie.   I also used some of my new paper from echo park and paper pieced her outfit.  It sure came out a bright and happy card.  I made a little pocket on the inside so that I could make two individual slips of paper to pull out that both Mitchell and Madison could have room to write their own specific notes.  I think that it worked out great and both kids really had a fun time writing out their 'Thank You' notes.   I have to admit that I really like how it turned out. 
     Well I had better get a move on.  Hope you all have a terrific Friday. 
Hugs, Lisa G

I know I already told ya on your last card how much I love these altered 'sweet teens' that you are creating but I just gotta say it again that I SO wish TGF would make some stamps like this! In the meantime I hope you don't mind if I try my hand at this kind of alteration one of these days... you've totally inspired me!
Really wonderful and clever card design too... that inner pocket is so smart and cool looking!
Stay cool my friend it is going to be a hot one here too! :)
