To Bee or Not To Bee 2020 Blog Hop

Today I am taking part in the To Bee or Not to Bee Blog Hop!

We are celebrating the 3rd World Bee Day.  Our hop is to support bees and to raise public awareness of the importance of bees and apicultural products. Pssst, I will save you from googling...apicultural means beekeeping!

First off, thank you to Milka Gubo for asking me to join in the fun!
Next, this is a hop, I mentioned fun, and yes, there are prizes!
So get ready for bee filled inspiration!   Get ready to HOP! The full list of stops on the hop is at the very bottom of this post.
Plus, if you want to learn more about Wold Bee Day, check out this site.

Now on to my card which mixes dies cuts and a bee (of course, this is a bee hop after all!)

 The clouds were sponged on to the background. The branch and flowers were die cut out and colored with water color markers. Then the frame and a water colored die cut bee were popped up with foam dots and layered on top.
Supplies:  Your Next Stamp Bugs and Kisses stamp and die sets, Stitched Square Frame Die set, Tweet Birdie Home die set, Puffy Cloud Border die set (used as stencil)
