I haven't yet finished the video; work is interfering with my crafting time. What I've watched fascinates me. I've always wanted to be able to do these things, and with her step by step instructions, I now cannot wait to try them out. The candy stripe (I think) is my favorite, but I love them all.

Absolutely thrilled I took this class. I have never attempted anything on a card beyond stamping a sentiment or computer generated ones. Nancy's cards were wonderful with her hand lettering, so I too will be giving it a go. How stinking cute are the Candy Striped and Dipped letters?!? I am in the process of creating a card and the Dipped lettering will make it extra special! Really enjoyed Nancy and the class!

A great lesson for true beginners in hand lettering. I've taken other online hand lettering classes that weren't that way. Enjoyed this very much.
