Merry Monday ~ SANTA

A NBUS stamp from my BFF at Christmas:
A cute Avery Elle stamp set called: North Pole...it has three hats with different words attached, like ho ho ho and jolly...Fun, huh?  My background paper is from PTI tinsel and tags.
I am entering this in the Merry Monday Challenge which is SANTA!
 
I had a wonderful time in the Santa Clara area this weekend.  I was able to spend it with my older daughter and we watched her older daughter play volleyball at the Santa Clara convention center.
We had time to roam and see some sites.  Friday we went to Santa Cruz, ate on the boardwalk and about 3:30 decided we better get to the rides before we head north to our hotel in Union City.
Well, guess what?  All the rides were closed by then!!  That's okay because we loved the sun and the beach and the walking did us good.
Saturday, Dina and I headed to Sunnyvale to a Crafter's Mercantile which was fun and yes I did a "little" shopping...didn't break the bank though!  Then on Sunday we went to Santana Row in San Jose, we loved the shopping and the restaurants, and especially the weather!
It was a very fun three day weekend...Ellie's team did well, they came in 5th in the 14 and under division.  And Dina and I love spending one on one time with each other!

  7. Cute card and pretty paper. I love that you get to travel along with your daughters and granddaughters to their sports meets and cheer them on. That is the best part of being a gram, I think. Your suport means a lot to them I'm sure. Plus just able to spend some quality time with your daughter is special.
