My blog has gone to the dogs

Hi everyone!  I'd like to give a huge thanks to those that wrote me with suggestions on my tape gun problem.  It did end up getting resolved!  The problem I was having is that the tape rolls were warped which caused them not to sit flush on the black wheel.  After much experimentation with different things, pushing the tape down and making a shim to fit under the little plastic knob worked.  You can see what I'm talking about in this updated video

Yesterday the Outlawz Clean and Simple Challenge was to make a card with a dog.  I made two!  The first one uses a retired Squigglefly image.  Colored with Copic markers.

My second card uses two images by James Horvath.   Here is the front of the card using Dog Artist.

I colored with Copic markers and chalk.  The sentiment was computer generated.  The background is some of the fun patterned duck tape!  For the inside I used Digger.

Now it's Monday and time for me to get ready to go back to work.  I really enjoyed this three day weekend!  And since it's Monday, that means there is a new challenge on the Squigglefly Blog.  Maybe I'll actually find time this week to play along!

I have to say blog has gone to some really cute and well colored dogs. Nice card designs and papers, too.

I am glad you were able to get things resolved with your tape gun.
