New Meaning to the Term 'Road Construction'

I finished putting these Halloween cards together while my DH was driving us to his mom's house for the weekend. At times the road was bumpy and I kept thinking of the woman on that movie "Airplane" who was trying to put her makeup on while the plane was going down! I found the idea from It was created by a fellow Long Islander (NY) named Michelle. She has a great video on her blog detailing the instructions. Check her out! She is very talented!

HB Connor

I was so excited to find this idea on! I modified it to meet my needs. My nephew's birthday was a couple of days ago. I didn't realize it would take me so long to make this card! I've made a couple of templates, so it will be easier next time. Anyway, I hope Connor likes this card. I miss him so much!
