At our next ATC trade, we will be celebrating one of our traders' 90th birthdays. Perry drives in from Rigaud, Quebec (about a 40 minute drive) to our trade in Dunvegan, Ontario every month. He makes wonderful watercolour and ink ATCs, mainly depicting local scenery but sometimes Perry draws people waiting for a doctor's appointment or folks just walking down the street. Other times he makes, what he calls "Perry Bugs" from odd bits of nature he's picked up: mini-pine cones, straw and grass, maple seeds, and the like. He glues them to an ATC-sized card and turns them into his own creatures. They're adorable.
At our next trade, each of us is bringing a birthday ATC for Perry and we'll toast in his 90th birthday with a big chocolate cake.
