ETA: This post is dedicated to our nephew Samuel Scott Courtney who was taken from us on this day last year. He would have been 12 and just finishing another football season. I sure hope there are pretty rainbows coming for Sam's family, because they certainly have gone through the worst storm ever this year. It wasn't until this morning that I realized my stormy cards were scheduled to post on Sam's anniversary. So very fitting.

Release time at CAS-ual Fridays, with three fun sets to show you this week! First up is a rainbows and butterflies set, which turned out quite stormy for me. I guess rainbows don't always have to be for happy occasions!
The rainbow is stamped & embossed several times on different colors, cut with a circle die, then layered. The bubble label die serves as a cloud, and a place to continue the sentiment. The stormy part of the sentiment used to be on a strip, but I liked it better cut up and scattered. Kinda stormy-like : ) A white outline helps tie it in.
The Studio Calico paper on the inside happens to go with the rainbow.
Same die, but a storm cloud this time. The Memento tear drop ink pads make it easier to ink the different colors on the rainbow. American Crafts umbrella patterned paper on the inside.
More inspiration waits for you at the rest of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Design Team. Stay tuned for the next set tomorrow!
Thanks for looking!
