This is my first time participating in the world-wide blog giveaway, One World One Heart, hosted by Lisa “Oceandreamer” Swifka.

To win the prize, all you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS POST only, with your name and email address and you'll be signed up. Then, your name will be put into the hat for a chance to win. The prize? The lucky winner will receive one CREATIVE LETTERING: Letter Formation and Basic Embellishments class, valued at $20. If we go over 100 comments, I will give away a second class!

Please be sure there is a way for me to contact you if I draw your name. I will be making the draw on February 12th and will contact the winner(s) at that time.

I saw your post over at the Compositionartjournals Yahoo group..you are so generous to offer this great opportunity.
I am getting a little better at the art part, but I feel as though my writing always lets me down so I am reluctant to journal on my pages as much as I would like to.So I would love to wine one of your classes.
