He is a very charming man and gave everyone that spoke to him, his full attention. A lovely man all round. I was gutted when he was voted off Strictly Come Dancing. I have watched the show since Series 1 and never actually picked up the phone and voted for anyone - but I did for Mark.
He has certainly put St. Neots on the map

I was catching up on some challenges yesterday and came across the sketch set on A spoonful of Sugar and as I needed to make a card for a lady I clean house for, I thought I would combine the two. I used the gorgeous Card Creations Art Deco CD for this one and printed out a complete page of cameo toppers and layered them up to give the pyramage effect. The ribbon is from the Card Creations Strictly Card Dancers CD. The swirls on the black card were made by putting the piece of card through the cuttlebug, going over the raised area's with versamark ink on a brayer then embossing with stardust embossing powder and heat embossing. Then I actually, for the first time ever, used my cuttlebug to die cut the 2 flowers (LOL) and added some black diamond stickles into the centre (although this doesn't show up very well).

here is my interpretation of the theme set by Beatrix this week on the Friday Sketchers Challenge blog I have used a rubber stamp that's been sitting on my shelf looking pretty for ages and coloured it with pastel whisper pens. The backing card is a sheet of A4 card from my stash and the handmade papers were all free over the years from magazines etc etc etc and the sentiment is a rub-on.
4. Margaret - just cos she's Margaret xxx She knows what she she does and it makes my heart smile. Always giving with no thought for herself and she too needs this to give her some hope xxx Margarets blog is here
5. Pam - another lady always there for someone else in their hour of need. So she too deserves something more than just this blog award, but she will still appreciate it for the sentiment xxx Pams blog is here
6. Our Kath, better known as teabelly (and a HUGE lover of firemen lol). Always there with a gentle word and never asking for anything in return xx Kaths blog is here
7. And last but not least - Nicky. A kind word, a good laugh and a great friend. What more could you ask for xxx Nicky's blog is here
