Simple Stories Domestic Bliss

YAYYY!!! I’m posting on the Simple Stories blog today! I’ve been a huge fan of theirs forever and being a member of their design team is a dream come true.   I love to send cards to family and friends to let them know I’m thinking of them. It never has to be for an occasion – just a note to say hi is always welcome!
My kiddos are growing up fast.. off to college and finding their own places.  Lately my daughter has become a domestic diva!  Going to work, cooking dinner, and keeping the house tidy are part of the daily grind.  I have to smile to myself and think “Welcome to my world!”  LOL!! 
Today I’m playing with the Simple Stories Domestic Bliss Collection!   I started with a background of pretty papers from the 6x8 paper pad.   I topped the background paper with a 3x4 Journaling card from the SN@P! Packet!  The pack has 118 pieces to choose from.  The “messy hair…”   2 x 2” card is from the same pack.
The hello life yellow tab is a sticker that you’ll find on the Combo Sticker that’s included in the 12” paper pack or sold separately.   

My second card features lots of Bits and Pieces.  If you haven’t seen these before you need to check them out!  The pack includes 53 printed die cut pieces like the washing machine, cute pooch, laundry basket and more!  
I mixed some Chipboard stickers in with the Bits and pieces like the detergent bottle  and the smaller laundry basket. 
If you look close under the word sticker sentiments you’ll see some pretty floral washi “Home Sweet Home” tape. I love the fun sentiments in this collection! Sometimes you just have to laugh at a situation. Laundry happens.
The collection has loads of bits and pieces to mix and match.  It all comes together quick and easy with everything cut and color coordinated.
I think this would be a fun card to send to a friend who might have her hands full with life. Maybe include a gift card for a night out, or volunteer to watch the kids.
Yep.. life is going to bring you housework.. but in the end there’s still no place like home.   And for me there’s no better place to be! 
Wishing you a great day with some time to do all the things you love best.. dinner with dh, hug your fur baby, spend some time with the kiddos, and maybe find a little crafty time to play!
