Yes, I know I’m late in posting this. Yes, I know I forget to email Lauren of I’ll Eat You to tell her about what I baked. I’m a bad bad Baking Gal. On the flip side, yes, I did bake cookies and send them to sailor Eddie and his buddies, so I can’t be all bad. I put together a goodie box that included a recent edition of Texas Highways (what can I say, I found someone at work who didn’t want their copy), some goldfish crackers, mints, and a very full container of Lime Meltaway Cookies. I had been wanting to make these cookies since I read about them last June in one of the blogs I peruse (unfortunately I can’t remember which one). They were delicious, because I, of course, couldn’t make them for Eddie without saving some for my hubby and me. I hope Eddie and his buddies enjoyed them as much as we did. The cute little boot plate was given to me by brother and his fiancé at the time (now his wife) for Christmas last year. Aren’t they adorable? I have no idea where they got them, but according to the back of the plate they’re made by the Boston Warehouse Trading Corp. I tried to find them online for those of you who have addictions to cute plates like me, but no luck.
Oh, and I also made a card to include in the goodie box. This card is inspired Lexi Daly‘s simple style. I stamped the Stud Muffin twice, once on white cardstock and once on the card, cutting out everything but his tail and whiskers and then adhering the colored cut-out on top of the stamped Stud Muffin on the card giving his tail dimension (plus who can cut out that teeny tail).

My sister, who found out about Operation Baking Gals from perusing my blog, also joined round 3, but on a different team. She made snickerdoodles, but forget to take any pictures, otherwise I would share some for her.
