Default Best cardstock paper for cardmaking

So what is your favorite cardstock for cardmaking? I love SU's paper and color choices. I haven't been able to find anything I like as well. Do any of you buy cardstock at local stores that you think is good quality. I am talking the solid colors, not dp. I would like to be able to pick up paper at a store when I am running short and don't have time to wait on an SU order but I find that if I buy it, I am usually unhappy with it when I get it home....

I like Bazzill Basics and Bazzill Bling.

American Crafts is also good.

Gina K and Papertrey Ink both have beautiful CS --the perfect weight for card bases.

I've tried lots of cardstock over the years. (I was even a demo for SU and TAC, so I've tried all their cardstocks too.) So far I think Gina K's is the best I've ever used.

I love PTI cardstock for the card bases and Gina K for images and coloring. The nice thing about PTI is that there colors are similar to SU so you can use SU cardstock for layering, at least that is what I do. There are so many choices out there that you might just have to get samples of different kinds until you can find what is going to work best for you.
