Melissa Frances and Papermania

Hello from a sunny Liverpool ...
I finally received my lovely new Melissa Frances C'est la Vie paper pack and the new Bookprint Pack from PapermMania ... they are totally different and yet I wanted to play with them both as soon as I could ... so I created a birthday card for a friend .. using papers from both packs ... 
That's the lovely thing about MF papers ... they blend in with virtually everything ...
The hard part was picking which one of the lovely papers to use ... 


I settled on the Hydrangeas ... which seemed to go perfectly with my card stock
and the print paper from PaperMania


... I also used some of the MF Green Honeycombe paper to cut some leaves for my resin flower and for the banner


Yep, I'm going to enjoy playing with these papers for a long while

It's a big day for the our city - our two Merseyside football teams ... Liverpool and Everton ... are meeting at Wembley for the FA cup semi final ... the things is ... my Hubby and my Son are Everton supporters (Blues) whilst I am a Liverpool supporter (Reds) ... It could be fun here today!
The world famous Grand National race is also on today ... as always it's a sell out ... As was yesterday's Ladies Day ... I enjoyed seeing photos of the girls in their finery and was delighted when a local lady won the 'Best Dressed' wearing a beautiful simple black 1950's vintage dress from her Grandmother! 

 I'm off to make a pizza for the boys and we can all settle down to watch the match ... 
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by

Oooohh I love the colours of your card, Ros. That ribbon is gorgeous. I've just bought the MF papers too but haven't got past the stroking stage yet. lol

Glad to hear your team won. We're all blues in our family - Manchester blues that is. :)

Ros and elegance are synonyms, at least according to my dictionary ;-) Your card looks adorable in those wonderful lilacs. Hope you had a great time watching the match?

YAY! Your team won, Ros. Luckily, in our house, we all support the same team, but they're only in division one.

Your card looks so pretty in those lush colours. I love the rushed ibbon you used...gorgeous! xx

Simply breathtaking.... just love how delicate and pretty that is!
Hey, my brother is a big liverpool fan too, he even flew to Liverpool 2 years ago just to watch them IRL.
What is Singaporean and the British? they just seem so tied up together, like my favorite store of the whole side world is Marks and Spencer! : )

Quantas festividades acontecendo por aí, futebol...dia das Ladies!!! E um cartão muito especial, hein? Realmente os papéis MF são lindos, mas com certeza foi a sua criação que deu vida a eles...Como diria a Mel: essas cores são as mais lindas do mundo todo! Boa semana, amiga!
