Just Us Girls Challenge...almost

Hi everyone :)  If you're here looking for the Just Us Girls deets, I'm going to have to defer to the team and the DTs' blogs.  Last night was my night to make my card for the challenge, BUT, having a competitive gymnast for a daughter is my occasional reminder that life just doesn't always go as planned. 

If you remember, Tia suffered a concussion earlier this year that scared the bejeezus out of me!  She fought her way back into the gym much faster than her trainers anticipated (despite three failed concussion tests) and made it all the way to the high school state gymnastics meet.  WELL, she also fought to qualify for the state meet in club gymnastics...and did it at the last possible minute!  The club state meet is tomorrow; three hours away. 

Last night, Tia called me half way through practice sobbing...and asked me to come get her.  Turns out she twisted her already weakened ankle (from previous injuries).  What BUM luck, I tell ya!  She wore her friend's "boot" all day today to stabilize it, and when she took the boot off tonight, her ankle was HUGE.  My jaw hit the floor.  I cannot imagine how she could possibly compete tomorrow.  I guess we'll see how the swelling is and how she feels, but it seems impossible at this point.  

Anyway, I lost a good three and a half hours of my night because of it.  So, yes, my card is late again.  BUT, I'm partially finished!  I will post it tomorrow night after I spend 10 hours out of town at a meet she may not even compete in!  Yes, this is the life of the mother of a gymnast.  Here's the challenge graphic:
In the meantime, please swing by JUGS and check out the team samples!  Breathtaking!!  Let me tell you!  Their links are also in my left sidebar.  Don't forget about our guest designer, Stephanie Kraft!  That girl certainly ended up with an appropriate last name...she wows me every time I see one of her projects!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sorry to hear about Tia's injury :( I feel for her too - she must be so disappointed. Sending positive thoughts for a speedy recovery. Hoping that despite the seemingly impossible situation that somehow she can still compete! Best wishes!
