Teen Boys and Valentines

Those two don't go together very well.  I do make each of my grandchildren Valentines each year.  It is one more way for me to let them know that I love them.  But now that they are getting older, it is getting more difficult, especially for a 14 year old boy.  Humor is usually good and corny is better because he probably thinks it is corny to even get a Valentine.  So, here is what I came up with for this year.

The papers and image are Doodle Pantry.  I colored the hamburger with Copics. The Washi tape (which is reflecting the light from the flash) is SU.
I tweaked the sentiment a bit.  It is a sentiment by Doodle Pantry.  The original reads "miss you" and I changed it to "love you".  It didn't come out perfectly but well enough.
