I was not really a fan of Dumb & Dumber, but this joke always cracks me up:
Lloyd: What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me... ending up together?
Mary: Well, Lloyd, that's difficult to say. I mean, we don't really...
Lloyd: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you, Mary. The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?
Mary: Not good.
Lloyd: You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?
Mary: I'd say more like one out of a million.
Lloyd: So you're telling me there's a chance... *YEAH!*
I always think of it when I submit to Papercrafts that even if there's 1300 entries, there's still a chance. Sometimes, however, I think my card can do a little better than one out of a million, like everything came together to make the perfect card for the theme and really I should just go ahead and mail to them now.
And then they pick the other two that I submitted.
NOT that I'm complaining, of course, because this is the first time they've ever picked two for the same issue from me, but just goes to show you it's always a surprise. One of the "chosen ones" was a card I made for Gallery Idol, but then went in a completely different direction. I mention that because another Gallery Idol contestant, Amber, is hosting a Paper Craft Reject Hop, so I thought I'd join in.
Wow, that was a lot of work to get to this card:
Ok, so yes, I think it would have been better if the colored gnome was maybe half an inch to the left, but I sure as heck was not going to restamp the panel. It was definitely a fun card to make, trying to be "random" in my gnome placement but still not have the same gnomes too close together. And Chowderhead font makes every day a party, doesn't it? The colored strip of paper is becoming my go-to accent: it doesn't add as much weight to card and is easier to mail than a bow.
Scheduling update: I think I was too excited about TAR last week, but unfortunately it doesn't start until next Sunday. Fortunately that gives Mr Corgi and I more time to get through The Good Wife (we should be finishing up disc 4 today).
I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend! I have some blog commenting to catch up on and then some fun cardmaking planned. Yippee!
