This is a weird little card that I did not plan to make. Last night after the BBQ grill exploded into a huge grease fire because DH hasn't cleaned it in centuries, my nerves were fried ...pun intended, and I needed some down time. Karen Barber had included some wonderful SU markers from the CC600 prize, so I colored these die cut houses that were in my stash. Lisa had posted a lovely card where she sponged a circle bg and I wanted to try it, and this seemed to be what this card needed. My light for the CAS challenge is the sunrise, and the card is made mostly of die cuts for the TLC. TFL, Francie

Eek, I'm sorry about all the drama going on, that sounds like one big mess. I'm glad you were able to enjoy some relaxing downtime colouring this peaceful, tranquil scene. The sponged circle sun is gorgeous, and I love the way you coloured the grass.

Yikes! So sorry about the exploding barbeque! But glad it sent you to your craft room to make this extraordinary scene! The sun is just amazing looking and I love the way it's rising over that quaint and cozy town. I really like this!

Francie, I can't believe the things that happen around your house! Glad you're okay, which you obviously are judging from this wonderful card! I love the circle background, and your colorful houses are so fun. The sentiment is perfect!

Wowza the coloring and layering on this card is amazing Francie! The card you were referring I had to do 25 of them. It took me a day and a half to make them. LOL! I am glad you are ok after your BBQ grill explosion. Gosh that must have been terrifying. Amazing card!!!!
