WS-Fortuna

Found a new  3X5 card surface from which to embellish upon last evening at R. O'Sullivans Irish Pub and Steakhouse in Escondido, CA... known to me for the longest time as the NIB (Neighborhood Irish Bar) long story for another day.

The waitress came to the table and threw down a slew of these sturdy 3x5 coasters that had really neat photos of California surfers and on the backside they were postcards, ready for mailing.   They were actually made to support a Fat Tire Beer.   My mind was reeling...while everyone was placing their drink orders I was calculating how I could abscond a few of these for the sake of art without looking too obvious.  I'll take a Grey Goose Lemon drop martini, please... before she returned I started to slowly shuffle a few of these in my direction leaving behind a token few.

Now mind you in addition to drink coasters, this place has wonderful Shepard's Pie, Bangers and Mash, Guinness Stew and plenty of good 'ole Guinness Stout.   It's 9p.m.-- no cover charge- Andy Walo Blues/Rock guitarist.  We had seen this guy here before and he is one talented guitarist he can play a mean Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Cash, John Lee Hooker, J.J. Cale to name a few.   I'll have another Grey Goose Lemon Drop Martini, please...   

So here is my reincarnated coaster titled "Fortuna" il "Patrono San di acquisto  domestico" "The Patron Saint of Homebuyers"   My contribution to this weeks Wednesday Stamper challenge

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to mosey on over to my other blogspot "The Way I See It"

I am new to both your blogs, but I am enjoying myself tremendously. You are doing some fabulous artwork. I think your gourd turned out great and you are only a beginner. You must have lots of natural talent. Be proud of that!

Dear Jesus, er I mean Andrea,

You did NOTHING wrong; I did. I was previewing my comment when I decided to edit it and forgot that one needs to scroll down to the black and white, and for some reason, first cup of coffee and all,I just blathered away. Sorry to have confused you!

Andrea is a lovely pink name. I see names in color.
