200th Sketch!!

celebrating their 200th sketch!!
The sketch may be simple, but I really like it, I reversed it top to bottom, added a piece of pattern paper from MFT dots & stripes neutral pattern pack.
The flower is from Altenew:  Layered Lily that I fussy cut.
The sentiment is from PTI: Keep it Simple:  Praying for you 
 
Lots of fabulous sponsors and give-aways with this celebration sketch!
 Had a wonderful day with two fabulous friends touring the Gorge and Hood River, specifically finding those country stores that sell fresh fruit, jams, sauces etc.  
And the highlight was going to an Alpaca Farm and feeding them.  Even saw two baby Alpaca's...they are sooo cute!!
And couldn't resist buying some Baby Alpaca Grande Yarn!!
The softest yarn, so excited about knitting a baby hat for a nephews new son and some arm/wrist warmers!!

Thanks for stopping by!
