'Thankyou Teacher' range for Marks and Spencer

A while back I did some designs for Tigerprint who supply Marks and Spencer. The theme was a 'Thankyou Teacher' range and they were after some apple designs. My designs have been used on gift wrap and a gift bag. It was lovely to see them mentioned on the Print Pattern blog.
