Croatian - Ljubav
Danish - Kaerlighed

I'm going to work these into a Valentine's Day design. That's quite a stretch for my skill level, but I want to send calligraphy Valentine's this year.

I did it! I used a slightly modified list to make it fit into the heart shape and turned it into a Valentine. I've barely finished the lessons in the forum and have never tried modern calligraphy, so there are numerous mistakes. (And I'm still trying to get the sumi ink to flow consistently for me -- I'll get there eventually!)

Thanks, everyone! It looks a little amateurish to me -- but you have to start somewhere!
