Have a 'Beary' special day...and some WINNERS!

Yay! It's Thursday! And that mean two's my birthday :) AND I get to announce some winners on my blog! But first, I have a super cute little card to share with you today!
I used the new Teddy Bear Parade cartridge to create this super cute little birthday bear! The party hat is from a different bear outfit, because I didn't really like the hat that was with the clown. :) I also tried to hide the face on my bear by using my Gypsy, since the new carts were finally added. However, with the new update, my Gypsy is no longer connecting to my E2. Which happened last time they had an update. :( So I finished it off by just creating the base layer in my bear color and stamping a little "peachy" face on it instead. The eyes are from the XL Critter Face Assortment, and the mouth from the Rag Doll and Teddy Bear Face Assortment. It looks MUCH better this way, because to tell you the truth the eyes (and ears) on this cartridge just cut out all funky and uneven!
I created a standard A2 sized card with PaperTrey Ink Kraft cardstock. The chevron pattern paper is from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 paper stack and the circles, from the mambi sheets CHAMPS 12x12 paper stack. I used Core'dinations and Bazzill cardstock for all the layers on my clown. The sentiment is from the new Beary Special Thoughts stamp set from My Creative Time! Isn't is just perfect for all those "beary" special projects?!
I also used some hemp twine from Liz's PaperLoft Boutique on the card. :)

And about posting some winners!
