Today’s wedding of Allie (Friends Furever) and Mau was my inspiration for today’s art. I wanted something romantic to represent their love and commitment. If you look closely, you’ll see that both are present in the photo. This photo of Allie is one of Mauricio’s very favorites.
This week I used PicMonkey exclusively and just a few steps to make the romantic work of art.
Mau will share wedding photos sometime next week.
This is our entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. You can submit some art of your own and/or view the other submissions by clicking on Athena’s Badge.
With Mau and all the ladies being busy with the wedding today, we will be having guest hosts (a two-fur as we call it) for the hop tomorrow. These two are regular visitors to our house. That’s the only hint you get. You’ll just need to come by tomorrow to see who is here. We look forward to having you join us and encourage you to spread the word among your friends about this fun hop.
If you missed our Thursday post, we are celebrating our Fourth Blogoversary with a giveaway of goodies from the BlogPaws Conference. To have the opportunity to win the surprise package, leave a comment here by Monday, July 25, at 5 p.m. ET. The winner will be selected using Random.org.
Finally, I would like to apologize for the lack of visiting and commenting by Kitties Blue. What with our Fourth Blogoversary and the wedding, time has been at a premium. I promise we will get back to making regular visits next week. Thanks for understanding and sticking with us.
Friendly Fill-Ins Week 11
Mauricio asked to do the fill-ins this week as Saturday is a special day for him: He and Allie (Friends Furever) will be married.
1. I wish I could afford to hire someone to fly me to Florida to be with my beloved (soon to be wife) Allie.
2. Zucchini is not something Allie and I will be serving at our wedding reception.
3. One Summertime memory I recall is the riverboat trip Allie and I took with Cat Scouts on August 11, 2014. (Mau has included a photo from that trip as well as a ballad he wrote for the occasion. He thought some of you who were not following us then would be interested.)
4. This Summer, (tomorrow to be exact) I am marrying the love of my life, Allie.
The Legend of MAUverick
This is the story of a purrported gunslinger and cardshark, MAUverick, and his beautiful and genteel girlfriend, Allie Scarlett. (She is not related to Austin Scarlett of Project Runway Fame but legend has it that all her gowns were designed by a distant relative named Miss Melanie. They were all hand-sewn by mice seamstresses.)
Getting back on track…legend has it that MAUverick could shoot the center heart out of the Ace of Hearts at a hundred paces. No photographic proof exists, so it remains a legend. All reports say, however, that he never drew his gun on any human or cat as he was a peace loving man-cat.
Before meeting Allie Scarlett, MAUverick traveled the Mississippi River on the paddle-wheeled boats playing poker and telling stories about his time in the Old West. Rumor abounds that MAUverick used to keep an ace or two up his sleeve, but this has never been proved. And it is known that he was not a cat of great wealth. Any money he won at cards was always donated to a worthy cat shelter of which there were many along the Mississippi.
Once he met the beautiful and charming Miss Allie Scarlett, he gave up his wandering ways. They settled in a modest cottage in New Orleans where they ran a kitty refuge and tended a garden of cat nip in their spare time. They were said to have lived happily ever after, well into old age, never letting a day go by without holding paws and sharing tender kisses.
Inviting All Cat Scouts
Mau and Allie are inviting all Cat Scouts to their wedding. If you are a Scout but haven’t visited in a while, Cat Scouts has an all new and exciting look. Even if you are unable to attend the wedding, you need to go by and have a look. If you do want to attend the wedding, you must message either Denmother or Allie through Scout e-mail.
