Love - Untraditional Style

This week at Mo's challenge, my friend, Cathy, is the hostess and her theme is to create a Valentine's card (or project) using non-traditional Valentine's Day colors.. well, that's simple and fun to do.. and here's my take on Cathy's theme.

Actually, as part of the team at Mo's, I know the upcoming themes for Mo's challenges well in advance, I made this card and took the picture a few weeks ago... then sent it to my son in Afghanistan for him to send to his girlfriend in time for Valentine's Day. I hope that my post out to Afghanistan and his post back to the the US all happened in time.  Please keep our troops in your thoughts and prayers;

Thanks SOOOO much for stopping by. I'm wishing all of you a very special day.

The cowboy card sure made me chuckle! What a cute idea and one I may just have to keep in mind.
But I do wish Mo had more on rubber. I lost all my images when my computer crashed :-(.
Thanks for sharing,
