PDCC79, OLW51 - Three of a Kind

So last week I barely squeaked in with an entry in the Play Date Cafe Challenge so this week I decided to get a jump on it and stamp up my cards right away - problem is I never had a chance to post them until now - nearly three days later!!
Love this combo of red, lime and gray - I think it is the gray/grey that is the unexpected color in this trio but one that really calms down this dynamic duo!  Here is a quote from the color gray:  "Calm it down, red and lime green - there really is no need for you two to be so rowdy.  Don't make me have to go tell your mamas about this behavior."
 If you liked the first card - what do you think of this one?
 or this one??
This week's OLW challenge is to "make three one-layer cards.  Yes, three.  Make three cards all using the same image stamp but vary the occasion by changing the sentiment and/or ink colour and/or card stock colour.  You must use the same image stamp on each card."
I love the touch of the Washi tape (swiped this idea straight from the fabulous Krystie Lee Hersch) - All of the products used are from -
Follow the link to my online store where you too can enjoy the wonders of Washi tape and the Just Because stamp set.  Remember - INKY fingers are HAPPY fingers!!
