Gift-Wrap Inspired

Today was my coworker's last day before she has her baby (she's scheduled a C-Section). Of course I got her a cute present - and even cuter wrapping paper. As I was thinking about a card to make for her I had an idea: make it to coordinate with the wrapping! And so I did. It came together really easily and came out SO cute! She loved it!

Of course I will miss my coworker now that she's gone - but I'm also very excited that she's gone! She was the classroom teacher in our kindergarten class and I was the teacher assistant. Well, now that she's gone, I get to step in as the Long Term Sub till the end of the year and get to TEACH! It's something I've been waiting to do for 3 years since I got my teaching license. I'm so excited! I can't wait to be the teacher and watch my kindergartners grow through the end of the year. :)


  1. Cute card! Will likes 'raffes. :) What did you get your coworker?

  2. I love the way the card co-ordinates with the gift bag (Fox & Friends is perfect for baby cards)! And Congratulations on getting the long-term sub position! Have fun teaching those kids!

  3. Oh how cute! You did a great job coordinating colors with the gift bag!

  4. Ohhh, so cute! What a great job working with your inspiration piece! :) tfs

  5. Tracy, I'm so excited for you! I know you'll do a great job stepping in for your teacher while she's gone! What a great opportunity for you!
    BTW, great job on your card - that is a really cute idea, just stealing the design from the gift wrap - it makes a great ensemble!

  6. That card is so adorable, I love how it matches the gift bag! And yay for you getting to teach full time through the end of the year! ~Jacqueline @ Scraps of Life
