The Big Cheese of the Week

Hi there - it is time for another installment of the Big Cheese of the Week. Time sure does fly, doesn't it? Before you know it, Christmas will be creeping up on us again. In an effort to help you stay ahead of the game, Waltzingmouse sponsors a monthly Christmas Card Challenge. With a different theme for each month, the goal is to create a little bit each month so that when December rolls by, your stack of cards is all ready to go. Lynn posts a new challenge on the 10th of the month - details can be found here on the WMS Forum or on the WMS Blog. Then you can upload your creations to the Christmas Card Challenge gallery. There are no time restrictions, but prizes are awarded at the 6 and 12 month mark for those that have played along with all the challenges up to that point!

So that little PSA was a perfect segue into today's Big Cheese. I give you Jeanne Jachna!

This is Jeanne's creation for the February Christmas Card Challenge. While her ornament takes center stage, the details really make this card. The big striped bow, the glittery bit behind the doily, the little baubles - all add so much depth and interest to her card. I always love how Jeanne's cards are so well put together. Everything has a place and is impeccable!

Congratulations, Jeanne! 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.

Bringing us our next project is Sharon Gregory (simplyshaz) with this adorable treat bag:

Isn't it fantastic? I love the combination of the different banner shapes and patterns. Sharon has some other great projects in her Gallery - while you're there, you must check out her Tea Party ensemble!

Finishing us off today with this card is Kim Heggins.. doesn't this have a perfectly primitive feel?

How can you not love Kim's good morning wishes? The rooster and chicken wire were made for each other, adding such a cozy farmhouse feel to her card - undoubtedly a fantastic French Country creation! Using just one color - this royal red - has such an impact on the feel of the card (I think it would also look fantastic paired up with a navy one just like it!)

Thanks for another great week of projects, ladies! Inspiring as always!

Would you like the opportunity to be chosen for the Big Cheese? Add your direct links for your newly uploaded projects here in the WMS Forum, a new thread starts every Monday!

Have a great day!
