Mine right now is: Pacifico Font

i have a bunch of favorites, Ostrich Sans being one of them. i recently blogged about my current faves and where to get them.

Does anyone know of a good tutorial on how to download fonts and use them? I don't have a die cutter but would like to use them on my PC. thanks.

Capegina- I have a Mac, but I'm guessing your pc has something similar, and it's worth a try anyways-
When I download a font from the internet, I just save it to my desktop, and then unzip the file. I double click on the .ttf file (usually it is in a folder - and I'm not 100% sure .ttf is the right name, but you will figure it out!)
When I double click the file, it opens up a font manager that is part of my OS. It adds it, and then the font is accessible to all my programs!
If your OS doesn't come with something like this, I bet there are free applications to download- I would search "font manager."
Hope this helps!!
