Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Household Items

This week, it's Andie's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...and she has chosen:

'Household Items'
We'd like to see images of things you'd find around the house on your projects.

After much head scratching over this one, I finally settled on the Penny Black image 'Here's Looking at You'...because if you're as blind as I am, glasses are definitely something you'd find laying around the house! I coloured it using watercolour pencils, and added Glossy Accents to the lenses. The papers are from the 'Wisteria' pad by BasicGrey, the sentiment is from a Studio G set, and the gold pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenge:

Hi Helen,
I had to laugh when I saw this. It reminds me of my Dad who leaves a pair of reading glasses in every room, but still can't find them when he needs them! The image is fab & it all looks wonderful. Have a great weekend.
