Carousel Birthday

I have a quick post for you today. Yesterday Mom came for a two week visit, so I'm spending time with her instead of in my craft room.

When I was a little girl, I was crazy obsessed with horses. I wanted SO BADLY to have my own horse, and if I couldn't have one, then at least have riding lessons. Neither of those things happened, so riding a carousel horse was the best that I could do. I didn't care for any of the other animals on the carousel....only the horses. So you can understand why I was excited when I saw this stamp set!

The horse was stamped on Whisper White, colored with blender pens & ink pads, then cut with the 2-1/8" circle framelit. The Lace Doily was sponged with So Saffron to match the horse's mane & tail.

P.S. I did finally get to ride, when I volunteered at a riding stable in my teens; my labor in exchange for rides. I worked my tail off, and it was SO worth it! I finally bought my own horse (a yearling filly that I trained) when I was an adult.
