Hug A Friend Day – 26th April

Today's card is another one for the J & C Creations calendar. 
26th of April is celebrated each year to cherish the feelings of love and understanding among friends. 
Hug a friend day is rejoiced with enthusiasm and affection, especially among the youth. For those people who are in struggling phases of their lives, having piles of official work and other businesses, this day provides an excuse to let their old pals know that you still love and care for them. Think about the difference that a single hug would make to your friend’s day or even life, and go on to spend this commendable day with your friends. You don’t have to think hard to do something special to celebrate, just hug your friends.
When I saw this Penny Black stamp I knew it would be perfect for this card!
