Something a little different ...

Hello to you sweet friends ...
before I lead you into a little something different ... I want to say "Thank You" to my sweet blog friend Becks of Midnight Lullabies for this beautiful magazine ... 


A real treat to indulge myself in ...
and for the sweetest little card that came with it ...


I love them Becks!

My friends' husband is also celebrating his birthday next week the day before my brother ... so I needed to come up with another masculine card ... 


Ok ... so your thinking ... this is nothing special ... 
but what if I show you this ...


and a side view ...


Not that I'm sure he will want his face posted on the web ... but I transformed a picture of  my friends' hubby ...  cropped it ... changed it to black and white ... used a grain image feature from photoshop and then printed it onto a piece of canvas (white side) ... then I adhere it to a tiny canvas board ... I then overlaid the tiny canvas with a card frame that I covered in paper first ... and embellished ... this is the back just so you can see ...


and see there is a little magnet on the back? so that this gets attached to the front of the card 


By putting another magnet on the inside of the card itself ...

... the corresponding magnet is will be covered by the insert



... so in effect he has a card with a removable framed photo which can either be put on the wall or maybe a fridge door ...
I don't know what made me come up with this but I'm sure I will be doing more of these ... I just hope he likes it ...

Have yourselves a wonderful weekend ..
Till soon
