Fenland Prints. They’re in the post

This year I decided on a cheeky shortcut to produce a Christmas card and reworked the image on ‘Experiments with frost and snow’ into a run of fifty Christmas Cards. The sizing was duly adjusted to comply with Post Office regulations, well it was adjusted to conform with the requirements for the lowest charge band and then into the envelopes, addressed, stamped and posted. Hells bells we’re ahead of ourselves for the first time in years and not panicking, that alone makes a change. There’s no glitter on them but the grandson who requested glitter is going to be in involved in a co-operative effort next year so I think we’ll start that project on January 2nd. He can design, I’ll do the cutting. then we’ll print them together and apply the glitter to the cards and probably our two Jack Russell Terriers as well, however they won’t be getting stamped and posted anywhere. The image used on the card is based on the view at Cotton’s Corner, a local landmark, where a road bridge crosses the Sixteen Foot Drain. A Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year to all the people who read this blog. Now I’m going to research the available grades of glitter for one of next years cards! Enjoy yourselves and stay safe wherever you are.


  1. Such a beautiful image! And well done on getting ahead with the cards – you’ve done a far better job than me in that regard!! Happy Christmas and best wishes for the new year 🙂


    1. Thanks Jen, I’ve got one problem and that’s because I’m never really happy with anything I do but maybe we’re all always wanting to do better. I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas and New Year. Stay safe and well, all the best, John

  2. I love everything about this post – your perfectly lovely cards, that the picture is based on a local place, that you make your own Christmas cards, and that you’re taking your grandson’s suggestion about glitter. I enjoy reading your posts AND seeing your work.
