Yeah, I’m still dreaming of a white Christmas . . . I actually dream about it all year long.  ROTFLMBO!  "Surely you jest, Julie?!"  Nope!  I really do!

I happened to use Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils to color this class design in–they are awesome on super dark card stocks, like black, and also on this yummy oatmeal!  Great.  Now I’m hungry for oatmeal!   With brown sugar, cinnamon, and cream . . . YUM! 

Anyhoo, you could also use Koh-I-Noor, which also work well on this kind of paper surface!  I dunno about you, but, I like my pencil tips extra sharp, and I finally found a good pencil sharpener for my pencils!  I was at Michael’s, looking to buy extra white pastel pencils, and found a 2 pak of General’s White Charcoal pencils.  I figured what the heck–may as well try ‘em and see what they’re like, and with ‘em came this nifty little all-metal sharpener.  It is DA’ BOMB, and now I use it on ALL my pencils!  Who’da thunk?!
