CCEE2007 ~ Non-traditional Valentine!

Hi friends!

There's a new challenge for the CCEE Stampers challenge.
Anne is our hostess for the month of February
and this is her challenge for the week:

 Tomorrow is Valentine's Day (also my DH's birthday!). 
 Make a masculine valentine in non-traditional colors (no RED or pink).

I thought I'd have fun with my card this week
and use a super cute stamp from Taylored Expressions.
I think this stamp might be retired now but it's a good one :)

This funny Valentine is perfect for my husband!
We met at an Air Force Base where our dads 
were stationed with the military
and he and I had after school jobs at the commissary.

Every day, without fail, he'd ask me out on our break.
He would always order this big burger with everything
and me, already vegetarian, would just eat a plate of fries with mustard.
He always thought that was the most bizarre thing he'd ever seen
and it soon became our joke.

You're the mustard to my fries :)


And oops... my cardstock is unintentionally red :/ 
I saw non-traditional challenge and not the color requirements so
 I guess I'll go sit back in the corner this week!
Please stop by and see the DT cards for this week's challenge ~
you can see them here on the CCEE Stampers blog.
As always, if you want to like up a card, we'd love to see it!
Just use the linky at the bottom of the post,
or use the keyword CCEE2007 in your online gallery.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
