A rare quirky hand-drawn birthday card John Lennon made for his Beatles bandmate's wife is expected to fetch £12,000 at auction.<br />
<br />
He drew the card, which shows five naked Lennon figures sitting cross-legged, for model and photographer Pattie Boyd's 24th birthday in 1968.<br />
<br />
At the time she was married to George Harrison and she, Harrison, Lennon and Lennon's wife Cynthia, were all at a spiritual retreat in India together.<br />
<br />
Boyd is now selling the unusual personal item through Bonhams in London.<br />

The entire band and their partners were at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in Rishikesh and the visit was the most productive songwriting period for the Beatles, with Lennon, McCartney and Harrison writing many songs and Ringo Starr finishing his first.
