One of my best friends has just announced that she is pregnant with her 2nd child and I want to make a Bella card for her. What is a good copic for light African American skin tone?

I have a couple that might work E55 light carmel, or E53 raw silk. Both are pretty light, but the E53 a little bit more yellowish for lack of a better way to describe it.

Okay, Erin, next time I'm in Florida, or you come to Toronto area, I'll buy you a coke, maybe even a burger with fries!

Just remember, great minds think alike!

The idea of getting a coke (diet for me) a burger and fries with you makes my heart smile.

when it comes to pencils I still swear by the skin tone pencils I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

Heck, I'll have a coke with any of the Shackies, anytime, anywhere! The ones I've met so far are just the greatest bunch. Hope to meet more next April.

More info please! Are they a particular brand? Is it just a pack of "skin tone pencils" hanging on a peg? My ATCs are done but, I need to know for future reference!
