How predictable am I?

Completely. Utterly. Depressingly so. *sigh*

A year ago, I took part in Jayne's Cyberstamp where one of the challenges was to select two numbers, put them together to make a page number in the Idea Book & Catalogue from which to case a card. IIRC I chose 7 and 8, giving me 78. Since page 78 featured a scrapbook layout, I reversed the numbers to give 87 and ended up with this card.

This year, Dani reissued the same challenge and what random numbers did I choose? Yep! 7 and 8! AGAIN! Didn't realise it until I thought about it days after the Cyberstamp - about the time I started writing up this blog entry for the new card. Just to reinforce the fact that I am a machine, it turns out that I used Orchid Opulence and Tempting Turquoise both times on a squarish card. Oh well! At least the Curly Label Punch is new... *slinks off*

Remind me not to ask you for lotto numbers - "Um, I want 7, 8, and...how about 7?'. The turquoise and orchid go really well together on the card, it's lovely!

I'm loving Petal Pizazz at the moment and you have shown me just how good it can be!

*lol* Thanks, Belle! Funnily though, that may actually work for Powerball!

Hey Marcia! You're so kind but I just know your cards using the set would put mine to shame.
