Illustrator and creative Emily McDowell recently put together a series of romantic texting Valentine's Day cards that parody popular and comical phrases and autocorrect spelling mishaps that Millennials know all too well while communicating with one another. The cards hilariously capture the popular innuendoes and lingo that is popularized through digital communication and uses it to express sentiments of love during the iconic February holiday.

Each card by McDowell is handmade, featuring comical illustrations and beautiful calligraphy typefaces in an array of colors and styles. The cards feature inscriptions such as "I ducking love you" that capture the iOS autocorrect converting the swear word "f*cking" into "ducking" that many Millennial consumers will instantly understand the nuance to. The card is creatively illustrated to look like a texting conversation as well, for added effect.
