Felix and Mimi for AJJ

When Felix asked Mimi out for a romantic dinner,
 she never imagined she would have to catch her own fish,
 then cook it on an open fire.
Love moves in many ways, at least Felix had hired a local seagull
 to whistle a tune while they were waiting for the fish to bite.
I think they were in for a long wait, those fish look wise to me.
A digital page using a mixed media background and  card as a base
where Hazel is hosting this months theme of--if music be the food of love.
Digital additions are from mischief Circus kits and my stored images.

This is the textured background I used,
 it was embossed Kraft card
 and shaded with distress inks.

Now for the  card that I used for the base,  here it is  on the left.
A stenciled background and I just had to ink up these new stamps. Tim Holtz's Crazy Cats. These cats were water coloured.

Looks like Mimi got her romantic dinner cooked and they enjoyed the fish.

Thank you for calling to see me today, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.

    Happy weekend

  8. A really fun page with fantastic background

  9. Poor Mimi, I think she doesn't like blue fish very much. Amusing that the seagull was keeping them entertained.
    Great fun and an excellent illustration of the story.

  10. Beautiful page with an adorable scene! I really like those cats. Your fun story made me smile!

  11. Beautiful page with a sweet story. SUPER!
    Hugs Carola

  13. Cute digi page and card, the cats are too fun!!

  14. You always make me smile with your adorable stories, and this one is no different. Mimi may have caught her own fish, but I suspect Felix caught her heart in the process. I suspect the bird had something to do with it. Great art, and wonderful storytelling.

  15. Fabulous Yvonne. I love that embossed background, and I guess the crazy cats craze has begun! lol. Here's hoping that Felix asked Mimi catch a fish. hugs :)

  16. So we have new characters on the romance front do we! Love the storyline :-)


  17. Another great page and story Yvonne. Very exotic looking fish in that water!

  21. this is a delightful page and scene-so fun!!! A friend just told me about these new crazy cats and they are wonderful-except all my friends are dog people so I am hoping Tim comes out with crazy dogs too:):)

  22. This made me smile love your cats and their expressions and the fun story that goes along with it. I have Tims birds but looks like I had better get the cats too, I have been inspired.
