Paper craft project no. 319: Warm wishes one layer card

So I spent a couple of hours today making cards. Here's one of them, and it's inspired by the photo over at Inkspirational Challenges :o)

I just happened to have this cityscape silhouette stamp* and it was the perfect stamp to use for the challenge. So I stamped it in black ink and then stamped the snowflakes in chalk ink. I spattered purple ink across my card base and finished by stamping the sentiment. Gotta be one of the quickest cards I've made!

Quick one layer cards seem to be the only cards I'm able to do lately when I barely have time to do much crafting with all the work that keeps piling up. Even DH has noticed that I haven't done much crafting this past couple of weeks; he actually told me to make cards today!

Snippet of our convo this afternoon:

me: I'm hungry.
DH: Okay, I'm going to make us food, but you have to promise me that after we eat, you're going to do some art.
me: Why'd you want me to do that?
DH: Because you barely spent any time at your craft table this week. You haven't even played with the new pastels you got...
me: They're not pastels. They're acrylic paints in tubes, dear.
DH: Pastels, acrylics...all the same to me. Whatever they're called, you need to spend some time playing, okay?

I love my husband! :o)

I'm also going to link this up to the current CASology challenge, where the cue word is "snow."
