One Layer Thanks

I've got three cards for this week's One-Layer Wednesday:  Variations on a Sentiment.  You can see more about this challenge here.  Our challenge had three parts:

1) use ONLY a sentiment stamp on your other stamps or embellishments allowed!
[I used the 'thanks' stamp from PTI Grunge Me]

2) use a NON-STANDARD size for your card
[My cards are 4.25 square]

3) make at least two cards using the same stamp that vary something (color, type of ink, technique, placement of the stamp, size of card)
[I made three cards, using three different color combinations]

I decided to make a set of thank you cards.  My muse, Laurie Willison, had published this card on her blog mere hours before I started this challenge, and I was immediately inspired to make these cards:

Thanks for Visiting
