Thanks for the advice on colored pencils.
I'm at my daughter's for a couple of days and there is a Michaels, Joanns and Hobby Lobby here, so I will look for Gamsol or Mineral Spirits. I'll also look for Prisma colored pencils - premiere if I can find those. I'll look for a sponge topped bottle too.
I have white card stock from SU, Gina K and PTI, so hopefully one of those will work well. Oh, another question. What kind of ink do I stamp with? I have Staz on, Memento, Versafine and several others. I do not like the SU black as it sometimes looks purple rather than black.
We could have used more rain yesterday, but I guess we'll take what we can get. The trees are really changing colors now. In a week or maybe two the colors here should be at their peak.
I love being with the granddaughter, but I always miss my stamp room, especially when she is napping!
