Joyous Day of Gratitude....

Or, Happy Valentine's Day!
I made this to meet the criteria of a few challenges for the February holiday.
I followed, for the first time, the wonderful picture tutorial for the 12 Tags of 2015- February
Holy smokes! I had no idea he'd been cranking out tags for that many years...cripes.  I'm a bit behind, but hey...better late than never.  
Here's my gathering of stuff for that challenge....
Continuing to follow his techniques...
Wanted this little vintage boy on here to accentuate what is loved on this card; which is....
CHOCOLATE!!!
A play on words for "Eye Love You..."
 And a side glance from this little cutie!
I also selected the ephemera based on the current challenge happening over at Simon's Monday challenge where I got to pull my favorite Valentine colors together of Pink, Red, tans and rustic white as the balancing neutrals.  Also, but not least, I couldn't wait to join in another Craft Hoarder's Anonymous challenge where you have to include the world LOVE.  
And because I never know what to do with tags, I decided I would make a card base for this and now it makes me very happy!
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

Hello Q,
You appear to be up and running with your projects which is great.
You are always brilliant interpreting a Challenge and making it your own, looking at this, one would never believe it is a TH design as most tend to follow him per se. You have added some fun into the design which I love, the collage Bg is fabulous as are your elements. I am pleased also that you made it into a card.
Smiles:)

This is exactly the type of tag I love and seem to be unable to do myself, I do struggle working with such a small space. Love the little guy peeking from behind the corner.

Look at you with another tag! And what an awesome one it is too! I love the fun play on words (B. Seekins, the eye doctor!!), and the sneaky way you revealed your true love!
