My "little black dress" of sentiments!

Hey crafters, did you know that Hero Arts has now launched a blog? And they're offering some lovely blog candy to kick things off! All you have to do is leave a comment saying which HA product is your favourite....easy!! Why not try your luck?

I mentioned my favourite trio sentiment of theirs (LL190) which I call my "little black dress" of sentiments, because they are so versatile and I use them so often!! The other 2 stamps in the set are lovely little verses great for the inside of your card.
The "happy birthday" I've used here is one from the set...sorry it's a bit obscured by the ribbon! Here I've broken the 2 words up by putting "79th" in the middle. I got the "th" by masking the other letters in the word birthday - this way my font is all matching! I've used this cool little trick many times!
The main focal image is of course by Penny Black, and I've been taking great care of these basic grey papers for some time now - it was time to get 'em used!!! bx
