THANK YOU so much & Farewell...


Happy Weekend to you all.

It's a sad day here at Uniko, as we are saying THANK YOU and Farewell to another of our Design Team members. 

Unfortunately, Sandie has taken the decision to step down from the team :( The team and I are really going to miss Sandie, not only for her creative inspiration with her beautiful cards here on the DT Blog, but also her organisation skills and hard work behind the scenes.

In the short time Sandie has been on the Uniko DT, she has helped me immensely with organising the Uniko Challenges, prepping posts and helping keep the DT up to date. 

As a small token of mine and the teams THANKS we have put together a little blog hop to show you how much we have all appreciated you here on the Uniko DT and you will be missed...

I chose to use one of Sandie's favourite stamps, the Paradise - Hummingbird! I started out by stamping the bird on a white CS layer in VersaMagic Perfect Pertunia, which is a pinky purple colour, rich and vibrant.

I then used my favourite curved die to cut the panel and stamped the 'thanks' sentiment also from the Paradise - Hummingbird set. Then all that was needed was a good sprinkling of glitter and then adhered the panel to a white card base.

The layout of my card was inspired by the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below. I rotated the sketch counter clockwise to work with the hummingbird being so large.

As I said a few of the team are joining me in wishing you farewell Sandie, so please hop along to their blogs to see their full creations...

THANK YOU again from the bottom of my heart and Farewell Sandie. I am sure we will continue to see you around blog land and even the odd visit here at Uniko! Hugs to you and enjoy your upcoming holiday :)


  1. This is so wonderful Bev, thank you for doing this, it has been a lot of fun being on the team and thank you for this hop. I do love this stamp but have never thought of adding glitter-looks great x

  2. Sandie, you will definitely be missed here at Uniko, not only for all the behind-the-scenes work you do, but for the always-inspiring cards you create! Hope that you'll continue to play along in challenges here - and we do know where to find you over at your blog! Bev: you've made the perfect card for Sandie! She does love that hummingbird!

  3. A beautiful card for Sandie with so many of her favorites!

  4. Beverley this is so beautiful!
    So glad the sketch inspired you to play along!

  5. What a perfect image and colour for the lovely Sandie's card, Bev ... such a gorgeous vibrant hummingbird in all that yummy white space ... fabulous with all that shimmer! Anita :)

  6. Gorgeous card Bev and love how you've glittered up the bird and used that fab sketch from CTS - I'm sure Sandie will be thrilled to receive it. Sarah x

  7. Wow Bev, this card is so gorgeous and love the deep, rich colour you chose for the bird. I'll certainly miss seeing Sandie's cards and I know you and the team will miss her so much. I bet this blog hop really touched her.

  8. LOVE your beautiful card, Beverley & I know Sandie does, too! She's a wonderfully talented designer--I know you'll really miss her.

  9. Your card looks so beautiful; the glitter realy lifts the image! Hope you will be good with the warm weather and the boys... Hugs, Gerrina
