Easy Card Change Magic Trick Card Trick Magic Where A Playing Card Appears To Visibly Change Right In Front Of Your

This is a really good magic card trick where a card is seen to change into another card after it has been given a magic rub. This illusion is performed right under your audience's nose which makes it even more convincing. Such is the beauty of close up magic. The How To Magic Instruction Video on this page shows the card trick being demonstrated then gives an explanation of how the magic trick was done. Method : Make sure that the card that you wish to change to is directly under the top card. When you place your hand on top of the cards, gently push the top card up a little. This will expose a little of the second from top card. Now use the fleshy part of your palm ( the part nearest the wrist ) to pull back the second card until it clicks free from the pack. Now push forward and this card should slide over the pack to become the new top card. This move will be hidden from view from your audience who should be viewing the move from above, looking down on the back of your hand.

Eric Winter Says Daughter Sebella Is an 'Amazing' Traveler

Sebella Rose: World traveler? Taking to the skies for the first time
at only two months old, the
daughter of actors Eric Winter and Roselyn Sánchez is already racking
up the pages in her passport. "We went to Bogotá, Colombia where
my wife was shooting a miniseries. We were very
nervous because the flight was long and it was the
first time traveling with Sebella, but she did
amazing!" the proud father, 35, tells PEOPLE. "She
slept pretty much the entire time." With Winter recently wrapping his
new film, Fire with Fire, and
Sánchez, 39, currently working on Devious Maids,
the new dad admits they are still learning to juggle
their professional lives with parenthood. "We are
adjusting the best we can. Our work is
unpredictable and requires a lot of traveling and [relocating], so we
just take one day at a time," he
says. "[We] make every decision with the well-
being of our daughter as priority." All the air time
has allowed the first-time parents to pick up a few
tricks along the way, including healthy habits and a
fun way to keep in touch with friends and family. "We always carry
Vitamin C with us and take some
(Sebella, too!) before takeoff," Winter explains.
"We [also] never leave home without our T-Mobile
HTC One S. It's the perfect way to share photos
of Sebella while we are away." According to
Winter, the phone allows those back home to never miss a milestone --
and lately, the 6-month-
old baby girl has had much to celebrate! "She's
always smiling and giggling. She recently
discovered her voice, so she's constantly trying to
have a conversation," the doting dad shares.
"When she wants attention from us she has a specific scream that she
does to get our attention.
We are blessed that she is healthy and a very
happy baby!"

Inside Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson'sRomantic Life in Paris

They have an apartment in Paris and were
recently spotted enjoying all that's glamorous
about the City of Light – but for longtime couple
Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson, it's the simple
things about the city that are most special. "The most romantic thing
about Paris for me is
just walking around and being immersed in the
city," Jackson told PEOPLE Monday at the North
American theatrical premiere of Kruger's latest film,
Farewell, My Queen at the Museum of Modern Art
in New York City. "Because Diane has lived there for so long and we
have an apartment there, the most romantic part
of our day is waking up in our own neighborhood
and going down to a cafe and just having
breakfast," he said. "Which is a really quotidian
thing to do – but to do it in that city is pretty nice." Kruger's
French connection extends to her role in
her new movie, due in theaters July 13, in which
she plays the ill-fated queen Marie Antoinette.
Being a member of a royal family has never
appealed to the German actress. "I do like the Royals and I definitely
watched their
wedding," she said of Kate and Prince William. "I
think it's something we can dream about in our
society. I myself have never wanted to be in an
ivory tower – I [have to be] honest." Still, the outfits she wore had
Jackson royally
impressed. "I definitely made the effort to go see her in the
full queen regalia," he said. "It's a one-time thing in
an actor's life. It was sexy – period." After Monday night's
screening, the pair headed
over to an afterparty at the Cultural Services of
the French Embassy in New York, where Kruger
basked in praise for her performance, and Jackson
stayed nearby, ever-supportive.
