BEE or not to BEE Blog Hop!


Welcome to the 2018 BEE or not to BEE Blog Hop!

The purpose of this blog hop is to celebrate World Bee Day, to support bees and to raise public awareness of the importance of bees and apicultural products.

This is an amazing blog hop with 18 amazing prizes to be won from fantastic artists, designers, companies and retail shops.



For your chance to win, hop along blogs of the participating designers and leave comment on each blog hop stop. After commenting, return back to Milka’sblog and add your nameto Inlinkz, but prior you do, please read Blog Hop details, terms, giveaway rules and privacy policy which are shared in Milka’s blog post below Inlinkz.

Inlinkz closes tomorrow, May 21st2018, 11:00 PM CEST. Winners’ names will be announced on Milka’s blog next day.

Hopefully you have arrived from Barbara Sproatmeyer‘s blog.

In celebration of the hop I’ve made a couple of cards using Uniko’s recently released Bee Happy clear stamp set…


I was inspired to create a semi random patten using the honeycomb trio. I stamped it using Altenew Warm Sunshine ink and then infilled some of the honeycombs using the tiny hexagon stamped in Altenew Buttercream ink. I added the ‘Happy Bee Day’ sentiment and a stamped & fussy cut bee flying away.


This card layout was inspired by the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below. Just too fun not to join in 😉


My next card is a reminder to ‘Bee Yourself’. I have had so much fun creating stories using this sentiment and the bee image…


I used my MISTI tool to space and stamp the bees in trio of lines using VersaFine Black ink. I purposefully left a gap for my colourful bee flying away from them, to represent YOU to BEE yourself.


I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and that I have inspired you too! Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful Birka Reinitz.

Thanks for stopping by today & joining in on the fun.

    AWESOME Bee Happy creation! This is the BEE’S KNEES HOP! My husband & I host 60 to 80 bee hives on our 5 acre place for the summer (to get them out of the heat) for a bee keeper from California after they are through pollinating the orange and nut orchards.
