More Stamp Camp pics & The Project!

My daughter Becky helped me prepare for Stamp Camp this year by decorating the gift bags we used to sort the project kits for the participants.

When each person arrived they were greeted by a bench with a display of the finished gift bags including their names on a tag.  The bags were beautiful!!!  Becky did such a wonderful job we promptly hired her for next year! :D

Although some of the bags were similar, they were all slightly different.  Didn't she do a great job?

She wouldn't let me even peak at the bags until they were all done.  As we would chat on the phone, she would ask me what I was doing.  My answer every time - I was working on a  project, but no details were told.  What I was doing became known as "The Project".  It was a special Christmas card I made for each of my three kids and my brother Jim and his wife Marion.

Drum roll please--

Presenting The Project --
The Project - Front
The Project  - Another Easel Card - Open 
Everyone has received their cards except Becky - she'll get hers tomorrow - so I feel safe revealing it to all of you!

All of the stamps are from the Magnolia Nativity collection and were colored with Copic Sketch markers.  This is about 1/3 of the stamps in the collection.  They are all so beautiful it was difficult choosing which ones to use.  All of these stamps are available from the Magnolia-licious store and the very wonderful and generous Diana.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing my special card.  Please let me know what you think about this card.  Having made four of them, it is safe to say I'm a glutton for punishment -- but it was soooooo much fun coloring all those images :))))

See you soon,
