Love Me Tender #WW An Italian Vs a Frenchman in #BoTB

Welcome Kittens & Dawgs! It looks Wednesdays this month is going to another dual blog post. That’s ok, it’s all about the love and fun we share for one another anyhow, right? ;  Getting my beautiful Valentine’s Day rose provided a good photo-op using it as a prop in these shots.  For a long time, I wanted to photograph a single red rose with my pearls DH got me for our 30th anniversary and finally I got it!

The following image, I shared the week before last in the CTST part of my post. I opened it in Pixelmator to give it a makeover adding an antique overlay to the background, then applying the Bouvardia Vignette effect.

Below, I added an icy heart overlay, a freebie resource I downloaded, here.  I put our initials in the frosty heart giving my creation a special touch.

Here’s another image I shared on Friday in CTST but I reinvented that photo-art creation with new effects today.  Which do you like the best this one or the one from Friday?

Okay, you not-so WW crowd, you’re here and there’s no need to rush off just yet. I invite you to stick around for the second half to help pick the next winner in March 1st Battle of the Bands.

All the love I feel thanks to DH gave me the purrfect song choice. I’m going with the King of Rock n’ Roll’s classic hit Love Me Tender, a re-work of Aura Lee first performed by Frances Farmer in 1936.  Just for the fun, I thought I’d use two foreign mewsicians to perform Elvis’s song in An Italian VS a Frenchman in BoTB!


Representing Italy, Ricky Shayne.


France’s singer, Johnny Hallyday.


Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional).

Which artist gets your vote, Italy (Ricky Shayne) or France (Johnny Hallyday)?



The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players.  Check back, next week same place and time to see if your pick gets named the winner! ?

I hope you’ll join me noon tomorrow for Thursday Movie Picks!
