"You Are an Angel"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

So my daughter says, "Is that white stuff meant to be like that?"  I answer, "Why, yes it is, honey."  My guess is that she would have made sure all the stripes were filled in.  Not me, I'm feeling just a bit contrary.  I know that white stars go on the blue and white stripes belong with the red.  I read about a mixy-matchy trend yesterday and felt a bit justified in my contrariness. 
Just in case you have been following my countdown, I now have TWO more school days until unlimited crafty time and long periods of reading with my daughter. 
Don't forget to head over to Sue's blog and see what she has in store for you.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Details - Stamps: Be Proud (MFP); Paper: Sweet Tooth White, Real Red, Brilliant Blue, GKD White; Ink: Tuxedo Black, Craft White; Accessories: Stripes embossing folder, Nestabilities, star brads, stampin' dimensionals, Copic markers.
