Isn't it just great??

This is what I made.....

"When your eyes are toooo close, you'll be wearing glasses in due time" is the old wives' tale that I have used, 

The "Eye"stamp is from The Tim Holtz, Oddities. The eyes are worked on with Crackle Accents but I think it was still to wet when I took the picci, so you cannot really see that it is crackled.

The background is also from the Oddities stamp set, and it was colored with Distress inks, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain as well as embossed with the copper embossingpowder. And I was figuring something out and thought that I would use the Crackle Accents on there too....The flowers were made from The Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and the papers are from Basic Grey, Curio.

I got the lace from my own stash...and the silver colored buttons from my moms knitting case.....I have placed two little flowers in there......

And this is my project from the Old Wives'tale when it is finished......I hope you will like it and will get your inspiration from it. When you want to join in come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog for some more inspiration from my AMAZING goodness you are not going to believe your eyes, cause it is truly check out the individual blogs of my teamies oke?
