Blog my heart and a card

Cute Monster narrow

Hi are you today/tonight??

I hope your week is going along nicely....TGIF tomorrow hey ;-))

I'm popping in tonight to share a card created for Manor House Creations....using the cute Little Monsters Collection from The ScrapCake.

But first of all I want to do this.....

Do you follow Stephanie Howell's Blog? Well I have recently rediscovered her blog with my newfound love for scrapping and she is encouraging us to be REAL on our blogs and say what's in our heart.

For me tonight it's sadness. I had to give someone some disappointing news today and it didn't feel good. In the big scheme of things in some people's worlds this will probably seem trivial but for me, right now I feel sad. I joined a mother and daughter's netball team a month ago to play with my daughter who was keen on the idea....deciding to do it was pushing myself right out of my comfort zone and my intuition was screaming "what- are you crazy?? Say "NO!".....but I didn't. I said "Yes" and the last month of games have been some of the most anxious times of my adult life. I have been hurt, humiliated, frightened, embarrassed, stressed and as a result have today pulled out of the team. I don't feel good about it. I don't feel proud of myself. I feel rotten for leaving the team and letting them down. But I also feel relieved. I should never have said yes. It was so not me right from the word go but I was trying to be someone else. Someone who enjoys running around like a crazy person, chasing a zooming ball, fighting to win and sweating like a pig in the process. That's not me and I knew that a month ago. I have learnt my lesson! Sad, sad, sad :(

Anyway.....onto my card now.....
