I am looking for the font with little hearts in it...I have found several but not sure I have found the right on. It's probably the most common one. Also the one I found won't show up in Gimp. It is a ttf font and I put it in gimps font folder.

Last time I couldn't get a font to go right in gimp I ended up transforming it into an open font here. http://www.freefontconverter.com/

After that it showed up fine. Apparently there's something derped with some of the ttf fonts to where they don't show up right or at all in gimp in some cases. After further contemplation I came to the conclusion it's probably the fonts fault and not gimp.

Thanks, O, I found it on your link! I had looked at DaFont, but missed it. It was Fiolex Girls.
EK, I finally got it to show, I had put it in several different gimp font folders (I have 4 different Gimps on my computer), and finally discovered that I had missed the one version I was using, lol. Next up...I need to weed out my brushes, they take a long time to load.
