IMT - Open Topic

Because its an open topic at Inspire Me Thursday this week I'm posting something totally different. Not something I've done but some Christmas cards my mum painted for my dad and me back in 1993! I've treasured them all this time.

The Mini one is for me. I don't know why but I used to always burst into fits of uncontrollable giggles whenever I saw a yellow Mini car. One of my teachers at school had one so I think that's where it started. Even now whenever I see one I have to have a sly smile. :)

The motorbike one was for my dad. Always a biker and a Harley was the dream bike, so here is Santa on one. I think he can totally carry off that look too!
Happy Christmas everyone!
