I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Thanksgiving already?

Seriously, where did the time go? It was just yesterday that I was swimming and reading by the pool. Now, the leaves are changing colors and falling to the ground. The nights are chilly. And October is here, which means Halloween projects will now slowly ebb into to Thanksgiving. That's where this card comes in...

With so many cards to make, I started with some CAS cards. This card base is on a kraft cardstock  with a green mat, and the leaf patterned paper by CTMH, Pathfinding Collection (X7186B). When I bought the Pathfinding Collection, I also received these great cork embellishments that I used at the bottom of the card. The sentiment stamp is also from CTMH, the Thankful Heart Holiday set (B14563).
