Another graduation card

Hello Stamping Friends,

    For a change it's been a rather exciting weekend here at the casgil family house.  If any one is wondering the name of our extended family is Casavoy and my boys last name is Gilman which is how we came across the name ,we just combined the beginning of the  two names together. 
    Yesterday my mom, K.J and hubby and I went into Worcester to see the musical Beauty and the beast, at the Hanover theater, it was wonderful, loved it! I'm such a theater buff anyways.  I actually ran into my good friend Donita, from High school and her husband and her adorable twin girls while we were there. It was nice to see her, but what are the chances of that happening? It is such a big and may I add beautiful theater. 
    Today I had to bring my dog Max into the vet he is getting snip snipped and a growth removed from his eye lid, he'll be gone until tomorrow morning, the cat Molly is loving it she is actually downstairs and enjoying her peaceful time, they don't really get along well. She usually stays upstairs when he's here and he stays downstairs he can't get upstairs too well with his bumbed leg. 
   Here is another graduation card that I made for one of the 4 people graduating this year.Love this stamp set  I've already got my money's worth from it. I think we'll use it in my next class in May.

Stamps: Go Graduate, from the summer mini catty
