Clean And Simple - TCP Style!

Hi there!  First let me say THANK YOU to all of our men and women in the military for their service and to their families for letting them serve.

Today I have a few cards I am sharing that I made for this month's TCP Tuesday CAS challenge.  I've found that as my migraines bug me more, when I'm able to stamp, my cards tend to become more clean and simple so this challenge was perfect for me.  In fact, I was able to get three cards made for the challenge, two with matching envelopes using scrap card stock.

My first card uses the TCP set A Cuppa stamped in memento tuxedo black onto a white card then colored with prismacolor markers.  I kept this card very simple with no embellishments, or inside sentiment, of any kind so it could be used for a get well or thinking of you card depending on need.

My second and third cards use the TCP set called You Sick Thing (isn't that a great name for a set) stamped in memento black ink onto scrap white card stock folded into smaller cards to fit into those small #10 envelopes we all have around the house somewhere for bills.  Who wants bills showing up in their mailbox?  Happy mail is much, much better instead!  Once the cards were colored, I stamped and colored the envelopes to match before lightly sponging some going grey ink around the outside edges of Sprinkles© card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend!
