Remember

These cards are made with the new PTI stamps 'Remember' which I think are going to be amazingly versatile. I'm quite hooked on them.
The first is rather special, it's a Thank You card for parents who have given a generous gift to my department at school as their son has just left. He arrived at eleven, on the Autistic Spectrum, straight from a Speech and Language Unit where he had been since he was four. He didn't speak until he was eight and when he came to us he was quiet and quite tearful most of the day. This July he has left our sixth form, a confident young man, off to University. We are so proud of him.



This second is for a friend who has just received dreadful news. There are no words I can give her, just my love.



The third started as a practise piece. I don't have a Stampa-ma-jig so I stamped on acetate to help me decide on the place for the stamping. I actually liked what I ended up with and it is so completely different from the other cards.



Stamps: PTI Remember
Inks: PTI Poppy and Moss

Three lovely cards, and all looking so different. You'd hardly believe it was the same stamp.
