    A North Carolina woman hit the jackpot with two scratch-off lottery tickets, marking the second such instance in three weeks.

    The Charlotte Observer reports Michelle Shuffler, of Granite Falls, won $10,000 with one scratch-off ticket and $1 million with another on Sunday.

    Shuffler said in a statement that she and her husband purchased the winning $10,000 ticket in Lenoir, and then, feeling lucky, decided to buy another one 22 miles away in Granite Falls.

    "I was in complete disbelief," she said. "I still am."
