Baker's Housewarming gift with Expressionery WRAPS

This post is sponsored by World Market Expressionery and Laura Kelly Designs. I received products and compensation for this post but as always I put my own creativity into it and all opinions and wording are my own. 

It's summer time and it seems like everyone is moving.  We live in a newer neighborhood and there is a moving van parked in front of a new house every week.  What better way to welcome a new neighbor than with a gift basket? One of my favorite gifts to give (or receive) is baked goods.  So when I was asked to be part of the Expressionery WRAPS blog campaign and creatively wrap a gift from World Market with pretty wraps from World Market and top it off with an Expressionery stamp. I thought wouldn't it be fun to create a housewarming gift basket with the baking tools for the recipe included.

Lemon Ginger Shorbread Cookies

Tart lemons and sweet candied ginger are such a yummy combination anytime of the year, but lemons always say summer to me. So when I saw this Ginger & Lemon Peel White Chocolate candy bar from World Market I couldn't resist putting it into a recipe.
