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.

That Stinks

I am a stamp horder. 
I have stamps sets everywhere. Some organized by theme and some organized by brand. CardzTV and The Alley Way Stamps have their own drawer. Why? Because at the time that I write this, I have about 40 sets of stamps from The Alley Way Stamps. 

It's a good thing that The Alley Way Stamps have a monthly challenge, so that I have a reason to use all of my sets. 

For this project, I wanted to make a get well card that was really different, so the image of the skunk and the sentiment really grabbed me. These are from the set called Stumped. To make it more of a scene, I added the tree stump (same stamp set) and the bird from the set Give Thanks. 

I colored everything with my Copics.

Challenges Entered:
The Alley Ways Stamps: AG
Sisters of Craft: AG
Aud Sentiments: AG + Sentiment
CCEE Stamps: Humor
Crafty Gals Corner: Humor
Little Red Wagon: Call the Vet
