Blinging Saturday And News Of A Guest Designer Call!

I was so excited when I saw the theme for this week's LIM challenge as I knew exactly what I wanted to do,the only trouble was I didn't yet have the image, but that really isn't a problem when it's a digi, I just put in a quick order and within a few minutes The card was started! I even attempted a few things I've never done before as the tree,star and baubles are all separate digi's combined to make a one off image, you can find them here at LCI along with the other amazing images in the set. Oh and a quick heads up, you still have a couple of days if you fancy becoming a Guest Designer with the Ladybugs!


The other first for me was printing my Sentiment directly with my image, I couldn't believe how easy it all was! If anyone can help me with how I save a complete image and sentiment so that I can reproduce it, I'd be very grateful if you could share :) I came totally unstuck when I attempted to do this  lol!



Anyway, the LIM challenge theme is "A Bit Of Bling", I just added  three gems a few drizzles of Stickles and a bit of glossy accents. 

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LIM 43,Bit of bling,
My Sheri Crafts,Decorate for Christmas,
OCC,O Christmas Tree,
TPFC94, Christmas,
Aud Sentiments 42, Holiday Sentiments.
Thanks for stopping by,

This is a lovely card Julie, simple but classy.
Not sure if you are still needing help to print two (or more) elements together, or if you have solved the problem but here goes. If you are in WORD go into PAGE LAYOUT then click on the first element (image), hold down the 'CTRL' key and hover the curser over the second element (text) - you will need to move the arrow around until a little + sign appears next to it then click and both elements will then be highlighted. Next click on the link button (it's in the top left corner on mine) and you will be able to link them together. Now they will behave as one and can be moved around together. I hope this helps.
