"It's Earth Day, It's My B-Day"




Hello! Welcome to the
"It's Earth Day, It's My B-Day"
Blog Hop
(Hosted by Gaby Creates)
Thank you for hopping along!
 
If you hopped over from
http://www.creativecutter.org/,
You’re in the right place.
 
If you came directly here or from another link,
you should start from the beginning at
to be sure you don't miss out on any
of the fabulous projects!
And, you won't want to miss out on any of
the awesome blog candy either!

This Hop is in celebration of Gaby's Birthday
and Earth Day.  She said we could make anything to 
do with a Birthday or Earth Day. 
I chose Earth Day...

Now…on to my project…

Bees are having a hard time, but we can all do
our bit to help save the bees, even if you’re not
able to become a beekeeper. Indeed, many other pollinators
(not just honey bees) are in serious decline too.
For example, in some countries, like the UK, some
bumblebee species have gone extinct already.
Many butterfly species are also struggling.
Some of the steps you can take will help
pollinators as a whole, as well as the bees. We need our bees,
and helping them is surely in everyone's best interests,
and it's everybody's job to do their bit, however small.
You CAN make a difference!

 



Hope you liked it.

Here is a BIG Happy Birthday wish
for Gaby and a BIG Happy Earth Day wish
for the Earth!

Don't BEE worried, I have Blog Candy!!
