This is challenge #107 for The Crafty Pad. The theme this week is "Love is in the Air." You can interpret this anyway you wish. I have chosen traditional colors for a Valentine card but used a novel card design: the Stair Step card.

I love this card design because the recipient can display the card easily and enjoy it for awhile. You can see the details of  Lucy and Randy. The image is called: "Valentine Kids." The punch, the ribbon, the glitter and of course the Gelly Roll pens and Copic markers make this card so bright. I plan on sending this to  a special couple who babysat for many, many children including my grandson. They are like family to so many but now live so far away. I hope this will remind them of all their "special" kids that they nurtured.

Recipe: Image: Robtn Fetish 
Sentiment- the crafty pad stamp designs
DP: Target
Punch&Glitter: Martha Stewart
Colored with Copic Markers
Highlights: Gelly Roll Pen

If you would like to make this simple Stair Step Card, HERE  are the basic instructions...have fun :)

Our sponsor this week is : Robin Fetich. The winner will receive 5 digi images from her store.
