Time to Chill -- Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog Hop

Hi there!!
Welcome to the
Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog Hop!!

This is Day 2 of the hop and if you have been hopping along, 
you have already picked up some letters to make a phrase. 

Today I am showcasing the new digi image called, "Day Dreaming" and 
he just makes me smile!!  The sentiment is exactly my life right now and all 
of my friends keep saying the exact same thing to me.  Maybe someday...??  LOL!!

I kept my design very CAS and just used a die cut and a
wavy sentiment (it comes that way!) to give my card some movement.  :) :)

I don't usually include my skin tones in my marker pic because
I use the same colors on each card, but someone asked
me what my fave skin tones are so here you go:
E000, E00, E21, E04, E11, & R11 for blush
For shading, I picked the warm grays
and added them for cast shadows
around his clothes and body.
Hope that helps!!  :) :)

If you have been hopping along you have arrived from
Céline's blog.
