Happiness in a Carousel Horse...

Hello! Almost just in time! I made this card with the Mojo Monday sketch. It took me a little because I wanted to use my Carousel Horse for some time but could not find a sentiment to add. But I suddenly remembered how wonderful and happy moments I spent in my childhood playing in the Carousel. The magical journey always seemed so short... I discovered that this sentiment is perfect for this drawing. It is good to remember and appreciate the happy moments:)
