Monday's Connect Four Challenge for Maymaymadeit

Today is the day, Challenge day!

For those of you that have never done a challenge like this, Maymay will attempt to explain it.

Okay, so you've played connect four before, right? Well this is how this works, you pick four squares but they must all touch each other.

The line connects, rain, spring, umbrella and funny. Therefore, my card must reflect each of these items. I might make a card with an umbrella on a spring with glossy accent dots to resemble rain and have a funny sentiment to go with it. That is just one example and it is pretty literal. You can stretch your card thoughts and go anyway with it. You can pick the direction your line travels, just be sure that each items touches.

This is a prize challenge! Just submit your card or video at and you are entered to win.

For this challenge Maymaymadeit will be giving away two stamps sets, Beary Sentimental and Mr. Big Ears.

Good Luck!

I used Teddy Bear Parade cricut cartridge and "Beary Sentimental" stamp set from I cut the bear at 2 inches and used the sentiment Get Bearder Soon! I used some twine and three buttons. I also used recollection paper. A simple but cute card. Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!!!!!
