    Cool BEES, BEES, BEES ATC Swap, Due August 8, 2019

    Swap Due Date: August 8, 2019
    Signup/Withdraw: none, just communicate, please.
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: unlimited
    Media: Any Media, please limit the use of stickers!

    Bees, Bees, Bees

    I have been spending a lot of time working in my gardens this year. The other day, I noticed my flowering spirea covered with bees. It is such a delight to see so many of them feasting on the nectar from the flowers. Each year I try to provide the Bee community lots of bright flowers for them to feed on throughout the season.

    Some interesting facts about bees:

    The honey bee has been around for millions of years.
    It is the only insect that produces food eaten by man.
    A honey bee can fly for up to 5 miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour!
    The average worker bee produces about 1/12th a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
    A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip.
    A colony of bees consists of 20,000 to 60,000 honey bees and one queen.
    The bee’s brain is oval in shape and only about the size of a sesame seed.
    The queen bee can live up to 5 years and is the only bee that lays up to 2500 eggs per day.



    For this swap, we will be featuring bees on our ATCs. They can be collecting nectar from flowers, buzzing around, or hanging out around the beehive. You bee can be realistic, or whimsical, do whatever your creative mind leads you.

    Be creative do your best work, and send in cards that you would be proud to add to your collection. I will do my best to swap media for media. Host cards are not required to play, but if you choose to send one, I will cherish it.

    Cards are to be standard ATC size, 3 1/2" X 2 1/2" and the cards should be straight and sturdy and in an individual plastic sleeve. Please include swap name, user name, your real name, date and location on the back of all cards.

    US participants, please send a large address label and a forever stamp. I will provide the envelopes!

    International participants, Please enclose a large address label and a well concealed US Dollar bill. I will supply the envelopes. Any questions?? PM me.

    When your cards are ready to mail, send me a PM for my address. If you have my address from previous swaps, it has not changed. Please try to mail your cards early!! I like to be prompt in sending back your returns.

    When you do receive your returns, please be kind enough to leave "you rock" points for the artist whose cards you received, and if you feel that I have done a good job as a host, please leave an iTrader for me.
