Look at me, two posts in two days!  Holy crap huh, LOL!  If you missed yeterday's post of the card I made for my friend's new home scroll down after this post to check it out! =)

Today I would like to show you a special card that I made for my wonderful friend Karen.  Karen was such a sweetie to invite me to Thanksgiving Dinner on the Holiday Monday, and I wanted to show her how much I appreciated her including me in her Family Thanksgiving dinner by making this adorable card for her.  Karen just loves Halloween and Ladybugs, so when I first saw this image I knew I had to make her a card using it.
 I know what you are thinking, yes it is another Lulu image, but come on, isn't she soooo adorable?
