Cupid on the run!

Hi all will try and get this post done before my son is due home from school and then I won't get chance for anything. I have made this card for my son for valentines day , although 16 he hasn't got a girlfriend though he has a fair few friends who are girls, and I am happy for it to stay that way. Some days he says he wishes he had a girlfriend then most days he is totally glad he hasn't. I console him by saying as he has his studies to contend with he's actually better off concentrating on them as a girlfriend would be a total distraction and there will be plenty of time after his studies, why do teenagers have to have all this stress along with rampaging hormones. Scary!.

He told me this morning 2 girls wanted to come over to our house in the holidays, when I asked what they thought they would be doing knowing how he is always stuck with his nose in his studies , a reading book or on the computer or PS3, I was shocked when he responded that they would want sex!.
I told him very quickly to inform them that there would be no bedroom fun and they would be definitely staying downstairs and I would be around, spoil sport or not!

We laughed about it after but I thought this image from I think Make it crafty would be fun to send him on valentines day. I coloured with promarkers and sakuras for the arrow shafts and blades and the sentiment I hand wrote , hope he sees the funny side, as you can never tell with teenage boys.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
The crafty pad-something for the boys
The shabby tearoom-no designer papers

Do it with digi's- valentines day
