Thank you Michele. Most of my friends call me Sue but since we have another Sue, Wanda or Wanda Sue is fine.
Your bear is adorable. I love drawing bears. I guess it is cheating a bit but I use ellipse with black foreground only for the mouth and cut off what I need after I rasterize it. I do that on a different vector and just add it to the preset shape when I use it on a project. The short line is probably easy to curve with the nodes but I find it faster to add it later. I have not spent much time trying to manipulate those nodes until this challenge.
