The Big Cheese of the Week

Hi there. It is time again to announce the winners of this week's Big Cheese contest. A big thanks to each of you that participated this week, I know that I enjoyed looking at each of your submissions. Please remember that to be eligible for the contest, you need to provide a link to your creation in the WMS Gallery. If you don't have your own album, it is easy to set one up! The instructions can be found here.

This week's Big Cheese is Helen Berry with, I am sure you will agree, a gorgeous cameo card!

The grays make such an elegant color scheme, and paired with the layers of delicious ribbon, keep the monochrome palette exciting. The images contribute to the elegance as well, featuring a cameo from Cameo Creations and the loopy text from Say It Loud. And it may be a little touch, but the half doily framing the top part of the label really adds so much to the card.

Congratulations, Helen! Your project will be added to the Big Cheese highlight album in the WMS Gallery. Please send me an email and I will provide you with a discount code for $10 off your next Waltzingmouse Stamps purchase.

Wendy ten Hove shared an adorable baby card this week:

If you needed a reminder of how cute the baby animal images are from L'il Buddies, check out Wendy's paper pieced version. Say it with me... awww! The tone-on-tone flourish background stamping adds interest without adding distraction. A great card!

Rounding us out today is a yummilicious card from Jennifer Cuthbertson.

Oh, those colors! They are so fresh - and gray, one of my favorite neutrals, is popping up everywhere. I like how Jen added a tag to her card front, it helps to reinforce the collection of elements yet it still stands out as her focal point. This is a real beauty, and to me, would be perfect for a good friend.

Thanks to all of you for joining us this week. We so appreciate you taking the time to share your projects with us and the WMS Gallery. This week's thread is here in the WMS Forum, we would love for you to share what you're working on.

Have a great day!
