Inspired by Silke Ledlow & Christmas

Hello and welcome to Inspired By All The Little Things! This is a weekly inspiration challenge blog and each week we feature a wonderful designer who inspires us as an artist!

Lesley here!
This week I have invited the talented Silke Ledlow! Silke is one of my most favourite designers. I have had a crafty crush on her for such a long time! I love the way she creates such clean, crisp and elegant designs. Welcome, Silke!

Silke Ledlow

I asked Silke to share a bit about herself...

1. What is the name of your blog? When and why did you start it? 
Hi everyone! My blog name is “My Life”….. A little over 10 years ago when my three girls were little, I needed to escape the everyday craziness for a few hours and decided to give      scrap-booking a try. I quickly realized, that I had tooooo many pictures and not enough time. Shortly after my scrap-booking failure I was introduced to stamping and immediately enjoyed crafting cards….the rest is history. Along with card making I discovered the “Splitcoaststamper” world. I also followed the trend of creating my own blog to feature my creations.  My first post was actually on 9/16/2007.

2.  What is your style of card making? 
To be honest it depends on my mood…I have been a roller coaster over the years, but I think I would categorize myself between “Clean and Simple”and “Classy and Elegant”.

3. Who inspires you as a designer? 
Amy Sheffer, Laurie Schmidlin, Laurie Willison, Sheri Gilson, Tracey McNeely, 
Gina K., Melanie Muenchinger, and the list could go on and on!

4. What sort of things inspire you as a card maker? Photos? Sketches? Other designers? I’m a big fan of color and sketch challenges…plus any kind of inspiration challenges like “Inspired by All the Little Things”. I’m also very lucky to be part of some design teams, so my inspiration is coming from everywhere!  

5. Share something about yourself that we may not know?
I’m big into College Football. My favorite team is the University of Alabama..…ROLL TIDE!!!  I also enjoy watching my girls play school and club volleyball. We recently moved back to the great State of Texas and I’m loving it!!! 

Here is Silke's card using this week's inspiration!

The challenge designers have also created a card for this week's inspiration! These ladies just inspire me SO much!!! I hope you will play along with us this week! We would love to have you join us!

  2. Sorry my card got linked up twice and I can't figure out how to delete it as this is not the Linky tool that I normally use and am familiar with. So if you could please go in and delete the second one I'd appreciate it thanks love all the inspiration cards!

  3. Thank you so much for asking me to be your guest designer this week! Loved the inspiration photo so much and I definitely had fun crafting my card!

  4. I am sooooo sorry!! I don't know what happened...linky got alittle over zealous!! I actually got an error message that said it failed to upload but when I went to resubmit before I even got started I noticed there were 4 of my cards there!! I am not seeing a way for me to delete them from my end. My apologies!! Looks like Pam had problems too!

  5. the inspiration photo is so sweet and all the design team cards and silke's card are fabulous!
