Pleased to see my Christmas cards in a garden centre!

What a surprise to see my Christmas cards, "Christmas Morning", while visiting Webbs Garden Centre in Hagley, West Midlands.

In 2017 I was approached by the Woodmansterne card company to use one of my paintings for Christmas cards. This is my instagram post at the time....

Early in 2017 I was contacted by the card company Woodmansterne . They had seen my “Donkeys in Snow” painting on my Instagram feed and wanted to use the image for Christmas cards.

I was quite flattered as you might imagine and, after contacting Flora Lee who had bought the original painting, I gave them permission to use the image. I was paid a small sum and promised some cards for my own use once they had been printed.

Late last week I was surprised to open a box that arrived by courier contained quite a few packs of my Christmas cards from Woodmansterne. They had cropped the original image and called the donkeys “Christmas Morning”

I was also very pleased to see that the cards were for the NSPCC childline charity which makes them all the more special. They will be available shortly from local stockists…..Enjoy your day!
