OWH sketch 163; FLAP - new boots!; giveaway winner

Hello there and happy Sunday! I'm combining a few things; bear with me. :)

Happy 3rd Sunday of Lent! I'm feeling much better and linking up with FLAP today in what I wore to Mass:
Those are my daughter's lambies hanging on the cabinets behind me. Oh yes,
we are rocking the picture taking today! :)
Shirt:  Kohls; scarf: Amazon, pants: Ann Taylor Loft
New boots! B.O.C. from DSW... $$$ but worth every penny AND on sale
My mini-me's: Nora, age 7 (rocking the skinny belt) and Tabitha, age 3
Last week I showed you a cool shirt and bag from the Mercy House Kenya. Today I'm pleased to announce the winner of the free tote:

Great post, off to look for the blog!

Congrats, Gwen! I'll email you!

And finally, those of you who are here for my card creation, here it is. I admit I took a whole bunch of liberties with this sketch 163... pretty much due to not paying attention! LOL
Lawn Fawn stay tuned set; MME everyday flair
I still think it turned out pretty cute. :)

Last week I discovered another running race here in my hometown. It's in April... about 5 weeks away. Though I haven't run much (okay, AT ALL) since Christmas I'm going to sign up. I did 2.25 miles at the gym today, and while I wish I could tell you I ran all/most of it.... I didn't. I only ran about a mile, but that's okay. I'll get back into a rhythm. I hope!
