So it was inevitable Penny Black Dance, Sing, Love would make an appearance and I have used it as the focal element surrounded by a more recent favourite release called Magnolia Rhapsody.

So two sunny yellow cards, the top one using inks and a stencil to create the sun rays within the frame and Heartfelt flowers stamped onto vellum and embossed with white EP. The sentiment is Penny Black.

Well, I bit the bullet and changed to the new blogger format, don't much like it but as it's going to be with us whether we like it or no by the end of June decided I had better get used to it.
It wasn't until this morning that I got as far as checking out my reading list (been a bad blogger the last few days) and discovered this message when I click to visit someones blog:
If you do not want to visit that page, you can return to the previous page.
Is anyone else getting this and if so have you found a way to eliminate it? Yes you can get to blogs but it it just adds another process which seems totally unnecessary process and the 'return to the previous page' doesn't even work.
It wasn't even broken so why the heck did they have to try and fix it and impose change.

As yet no new date has been set as most of the service providers, venue, caterer, florist etc., who had already been paid and not about to refund are already booked for next year by those arranging weddings before all this kicked off. There were one or two winter dates when everyone was available at the same time, but the whole wedding theme, dresses etc., was arranged around Anysia's favourite flowers Peonies which have a short season right now. So at the moment we are looking towards 2022 and that seems such a long, long way off and I pray my failing eyesight will hang in there long enough for me to see it all.
Onto our new challenge at Allsorts, our host this week is Tracy Mouse and would like us to create some 'Magical World's'. This weeks winner will receive a Lavinia stamp which was another of those I repeat ordered without checking what I already had but will have to go to the winner at some later point, not that I've been out but told that not only has our local Post Office been closed since March, the village post box has now been taped up with a message nearest one is........basically miles away.
I also have a post over on the Chocolate Baroque blog today and sharing those as well.

I decided it was time to give this new A4 Aall and Create stencil called 'Totally Dotty' an outing as it's been floating around my desk for weeks and it inspired me to have a little play. I inked the stencil with Distress Oxides, spritzed with water and placed over a piece of card and rubbed gently to release the colour. Once dried I placed the stencil back in place and sprayed yellow Dylusions, then stamped with Penny Black stamps using Versafine Clair.
Stay safe and well everyone and if you have sunshine, then enjoy.
