Christmas Cards GET YOURS EARLY
My Christmas Cards are still available. The cards are available from me direct by post, and are available in packs of 5 cards. The card is large format A5 size and has “Seasons Greetings” on the front, which is repeated as a message on the inside of the card.
Taken from an original oil painting commissioned by myself and painted by Derek Roberts, the resident artist for Sterling Moss, it depicts a traditional and nostalgic British Christmas time scene. It shows traditional red buses that have been close to me for some years that are shown outside a snow-covered hostelry, the style of which was typical of those used by the original Midland Red company on their famous Coach Cruise holidays. The scene is completed by the snow capped Royal Mail postbox and the iconic British GPO red telephone box.
A Pack of 5 cards are £4.79 plus 0.98p p&p.
You can buy these by ordering by post to Ashley Wakelin, 23 Broad Street, Brinklow, Warwickshire. CV23 0LS cheques payable to A. Wakelin
