Teddy Bear Trash!

Hello  everyone!
I actually got a leg up on this week's Flaunt it Fridays challenge, which was to   use the teddy bear in the trash image from the Give A Hoot cartridge.  Well, I don't have that cartridge.  However, I made my little guy using the teddy bear form Create Critter and I made a trash can and lid by manipulating a pail, a rounded rectangle  and a smile image on various other carts and stretching, welding, etc on my Gypsy.  I just love that  device.  I have to admit that the whole first 8 months I had my Gypsy I was frustrated to no end.  Then I purchased the Gypsy A-Z DVD from Above Rubies Studio and  I really took off with it (not to mention the  dozens of YouTube videos I watched)! ... Now I can't imagine why I had a problem  and don't know how I ever crafted without it!

Anyway, here is my project for the challenge.  It's card for my firend who  needs a little pick-me-up!
Recipe for this card:
Cartridges:  Create A Critter, George and Basic Shapes, & Everyday Paper Dolls
Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye (Wild Asparagus)
Card stock:  DCWV
Felt flowers:  Michael's
Letter stickers:  Basic Grey, Granola
Micro pen for edging

That's it for today!  Hope everyone is staying warm!!!!
