World Bee Day – To BEE or not to BEE Blog Hop!

World Bee Day – To BEE or not to BEE Blog Hop!

Hey & Happy HOT Hump Day! It’s a scorcher here in the UK today and up North we are recording temperatures of 27 degrees celsius!

Welcome to the 2020 BEE or not to BEE Blog Hop!

Hopefully you have hopped on over from the official start of the hop on Milka‘s blog and all the participants can be found at the end of this post.

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.



And this is what I have created for the occasion…

My creative mojo and time has been seriously lacking these past 5/6 weeks in lockdown here in the UK, but I managed to whip this card up using some AAA Cards challenge inspiration! You can check their challenge out HERE and below is the challenge cue.

I have gone over up to one third of my card slightly 🙁 I should have overlapped the bees onto the yellow and black stripes a little more perhaps. It was the inspiration I needed to create though! Oh, and BTW Uniko is the current sponsor!!

As it’s World Bee Day, the Uniko BEE Happy clear stamp set had to be featured and I have paired it with the Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe.

I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out considering my lack of stamping recently!

Happy BEE Day!

    Your CAS bee card is so sweet!
    Maybe you could make this stamp
    set into a digital one. It would be awesome to
    have more Uniko digital images available.

    Your bees look beautiful with the striped border Beverley and I love the way your bee trails are repeated in the curls of the sentiment. And that sentiment is very appropriate! Vicky x
