Truth Is... {and happy hugs}

Hello there...I had to play along with the current Runway Inspired...I loved those stripes.  I combined two CAS-ual Friday Stamps set for my card today:  Truth Is and WTF.  Love those flowers and the funky fonts!  
 
And I wanted to share some happy everyday moments.  I'm calling them happy hugs today...and here they are.
  • The best one first:  Collin's smile and big hug when he got 43 (his goal is 40) on his math fast facts while working with Pat. He came running into tell me...his smile and the hug were beyond precious.  My little man is working hard!
  • A hug from my co-worker...who I gave a thank you note for great client service.  She gave me a great hug...not just a hug for the sake of a quick thank you back, but a solid hug.  Love that my team is comfortable doing that.  It means a ton to me as their manager...and don't you worry...I'm not crossing the line :)
  • A hug from a friend...who I made a set of "professional" thank you notes to support her business.  Her goal is to send out more thank yous to clients and other people supporting her growth.
What about you?  Received any happy hugs lately?

  6. I've been loving Michele's stamps and you used them beautifully here, Lynn!

    I try to give a happy hug daily to someone. I remember once, our company had an ongoing sexual harassment suit and told every store that we were not to touch or hug each other! It was the stupidest rule EVER!! At my store, there are some of us who have worked together for 30 years, and there was NO WAY we were going to stop giving each other hugs! Glad to hear you, and the people you work with, feel the same way! We all need more hugs! :)

  9. Love the card! Kraft with red and white - yummmm :)

    Hugs are the best - they can express so much without words ever having to be said. My hug came from my daughter who stayed home sick from school for few days and said when she hugs me she just feels better. Second one came from my son who gave me a big hug after I helped him set up the formatting on Word for his Mesopotamia project and showed him how to use it.

  13. Such a cute card Lynn. Great color combo. Loved reading about your happy hugs too. No hugs going on here this week as we are all under the weather with fevers and such:) Hope all is well with you.

  14. First, your card is so striking, I like that you created a pattern with that image too. Second, congratulations to Collin-that's got to be quite an accomplishment. I received a good hug today, from my dad's father, who is struggling to stay optimistic after continuously visiting my grandmother at the hospital. He appreciated the time I took to visit, it broke up the monotony of his day.
