Another teen card!

I'm not going to say TGIF - but I'm thinking it!!!  My card today is another teen card - I find these so much fun to make (perhaps it's wistful thinking).  Here is a more grungy one!  (Is "grunge" an outdated term now?!!)

 
 

This is Codi Stylin by Pollycraft and I made this card especially for this week's Pollycraft challenge for 'teens'.  I am lovin' this brand at the moment!  It might have something to do with yesterday when they chose my card here as one of their top picks from last week's challenge for "fly me to the moon"!  What sweeties!

As a double whammy, yesterday Jeanie chose my card here so I became one of her Krafty Chicks!  I just luuuurve using kraft cardstock - I think it gives a more modern, contemporary feel and I can't get enough of it!  (Luckily Elaine stocks plenty of it here!)  That's twice I've won this award and Jeanie said I'm a "two timing chick" - cheeky chick!  So my head is a little bigger today and I thank both blogs for choosing my cards!

I used the sketch over at Lora Crafts Sunday #12 sketch challenge...



Thanks for joining me today and I hope the day zooms quickly by so you can start your weekend!
