365 Cards - #178 - Back To School

I know, I know, I know I have been away for a while but truth be told that dreaded flu virus I had returned with a vengeance!!!! I ended up in bed again and oh so much sicker with it. Yesterday after being away visiting family on the weekend and coughing day and night I finally said to Ray (hubby) I have to go to the doctors to find out what is wrong with me this is not a normal flu. My doctor suspects Whooping Cough and so she took a swab of my throat and I will know in another day or so what the outcome is.I am also on antibiotics for it just in case. She did say however that I could have got another bout of flu directly on top of the other one which made sense because it was the same symptoms but a lot worse. I have not tasted one thing in over three weeks nor smelt my patchouli perfume or anything else for that matter for the same amount of time and on occasion that could be good due to a grandaughter in nappies lol. So consequently, I have to keep my distance from the grandchildren or anyone else for that matter who has not been immunised against Whooping Cough. Well all my family have as have the grandchildren but you never know these days who immunises and who doesn't. I still don't have a clear voice either as it fades in and out constantly lol sometimes it sounds sexy (according to Ray) and other times it sounds like a high pitched hyena!!! Anyway on with my card and I have to say this is the first day I have felt like making a card since last week so I took advantage of that. The challenge today was to have a back to school theme - other than that anything goes. So I chose to use a blackboard and I then took my white gel pen and had fun writing on the blackboard. Then I created a set of crayons again writing on them and for the sentiment I decided to also write that as well. Therefore no stamps were used except for the SU Tart & Tangy stamp set for the apple.

I hope you enjoy my card today and I also hope that I am back on deck to stay this time.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock. SU Tart and Tangy stamp set and designer paper both of which are deceased. SU Brads and clip. SU White Gel pen. ZIG black pen.

Michelle, sorry to hear that you are sick. This card is so cute and I love how you created the crayons and chalkboard.
Funny I wear patchouli oil too and sometimes I mix a little vanilla oil with it. Yummy. Best smells in the world. Have worn it since high school in 1902 or whatever year it was.
