    Coronavirus, My life in 6 words. OPEN Media Due May 18th, 2020

    Due May 18th, 2020.
    Cards: 3:3 or 5:5
    Unlimited players and lurkers welcomed
    Coronavirus, My life in 6 words,

    ABOUT THE CARDS: 3:3 or 5:5 (your cards can be the same or different, no one will shame you if you make them the same, I am swapping them anyway)

    This is an open media swap, so you must be willing to receive all types of art in return. Open Medium: Mixed media, postage stamps, rubber stamped images, Zentangles, hand drawn, hand painted are all acceptable.

    You need to tell your story amid the coronavirus in the 6 word story pattern. Please count your words. 6 words, no more, no less.

    Examples. "I coughed, they tested, I passed." "No sneezes please, cover your cough." "Sick of being inside in pajamas." Those are my 3 ideas off the top of my head. Despite the seriousness, of this topic. Please keep it light and not too dark and morbid

    You also need at least one image, or flower, or butterfly or something. You can not have just the 6 words and a background with embellishments you need an image of some kind. If you are Zentangling create an image as well.

    On the back of your cards please add your name, AFA user name, and other contact info.

    Sure I want a hostess card, we all do, but really we are just thrilled that you will play, so no pressure. Have fun and be creative.


    MAILING INFO

    Mailing info. PM me for my address, if you dont have it saved. I haven't moved in 17 years.

    USA MAILERS: Include either a SASE envelope with enough postage. 3 cards will only cost you one forever stamp. 5 might cost you an additional ounce fee so 70 cents. If you use any gems or brads or other elements I need to mail them non machinable. That cost 15 cents for each card. A great bargain, for a mere 15 cents. Please no embellishments that are bulky.

    International players: I will take $1 USA or a Global USA stamp, Or your countries postage equivalent or your countries $1 equivalent. I am not too picky about this. I do anticipate I can mail back 5 cards all long as Is can keep the weight under an ounce for countries beside Canada, for the $1.20 postal cost. I know I can do the 3 cards for that postal cost.


    No silent swappers, You must post that you intend to play or are lurking, that you have mailed and that you have received your returns. You must RATE with You rocks, the artists who made the cards in your return envelope. You can give me itrader, as it is one way I know your cards have arrived home to you.

    I am bored, so please forgive me, but I am bored. I have lots I can do but I am restless.

    I thought up this idea for this swap.

    Six Word Constraint??? I'm too Verbose!

    Lurking!
    Above comment took me almost an hour to put together properly because I always talk too much, and trying to get my thoughts down to only six words is next to impossible on a good day, and I am too stressed for this to be a good day.

    Ok. Question. Do the 6 words have to be on the front of the card, in text of some kind, to be read? Or can we just have an image or images on the front and the 6 words on the back?

    Oh yes, the words and image on the front. I think I have one saved from the last 6 words swap.









    These are just cards from past 6 word story cards

    I am glad you are all here. Lurkers are listed too, as you can play and create or just make some 6 word stories.

    I checked my wording. The USA global stamps are just USA stamps that cost $1.20. Since you live in the USA you will most likely need one forever stamps to get your cards home.

    Many hosts in other countries will accept the USA global stamps as payment for the swap to be returned. Those host in turn us the global stamps so they can participate in swaps hosted by USA hosts. They cant actually use the USA global stamp from say AU to USA nor UK to USA. Clear as mud?

    Yes makes sense. I suppose I was simply confused. Also, I didn't realize our post title was supposed to include our six words. Mine will be "My normal routine is called Quarantine"

    Actually I didn't either I was just plating around after reading the others. Your 6-word-quote is awesome.

    Years ago we had a chunky swap where the six words were supposed to be self descriptive. But I can't remember the term(name) that was given to those little descriptions.

    Oh it was required but other players and lurker started doing it so I thought it would be fun to post the quotes. Obviously have too much time on my. hands, If I can link all your quotes etc. But alas right now I do.
