So I would like to combine them to minimalize the gap between them
It depends on how the layout xml is written. Like Pandora, if it's written where the background is contstrained to a certain size, then you would have to edit the xml. But if not (as is the case with smoothcalendar, vlingo, etc), then you can just make the background image larger. You wouldn't be able to combine them per say, but you may be able to make the background tall enough to go edge-to-edge.

I have the same two widgets, though for my wallpaper, I like the clock without a background. Give it a try and post your results!

FYI: Yesterday I recorded a video tutorial doing this process 5 times, every time the recording application crapped out when compiling everythin (about 8 minutes worth). I tried mostly CamStudio, which really had issues. I finally got the video to compile, then it gave me an error message saying it lost the audio. Anybody know any GOOD screen recording applications that are free for up to 10 minutes of recording?
