Playing With My New Magnolia Down Under Store Goodies!

The other weekend Kellie gave me a fabulous little box of goodies to play with - including some of the new items she's stocking in her Magnolia Down Under Store! I finally had a few minutes to have a play with them and this is what I came up with!

The mesh ribbon - which is a favourite of mine, the flower, the doily and the sunbonnet charm are all new items in the store - and they work in soooo well with the Magnolia DP and images. This image is "Wilma with Rose" from the Raising the Ceiling collection. After I had put this together I was thinking that the sunbonnet charm could be great for Easter too - an Easter Bonnet - or for a Mother's Day card - the list is endless really! Kellie also has a fabulous little boy's cap charm too....

I found an old dictionary at the Op Shop for $2 - and most of it is in great condition - until I started pulling pages out for backgrounds - LOL. But really - it's cheap DP and I LOVE the look!

I think this card will be heading off to my younger sister later in the month - she loves animals and I know she would prefer to see Wilma here than any of my Tildas or Edwins.

So don't forget to stop over at Magnolia Down Under and check out all the fabulous new goodies Kellie is stocking!!! Just be aware that unfortunately she's had to stop shipping internationally!
