Its Snow Joke!!! 2 Cards!

Ok ok its been snowing most of the day again here. I have never known it so bad. I hope you are all well and keeping warm if you are affected by it all.
This first card is for my Cousin from my Aunt and Uncle for her Christmas Day birthday! I thought I would do something totally off Christmas colours. So I went with the yellow from Ladybug Crafts Challenge Colour wheel. So mmm can you guess what my fav colour is (purple!!)
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Caz's Colour Wheel (I was in their top 3 last week Thanks Girls)
Pile it on - Feathers and Fur
A Spoonful of Sugar - 3 Papers, 3 Flowers and 3 Gems (Pearls)
The Crazy challenge - On the Go (Running about playing with her ball)

6 x 6 Card
3 Papers from Craftworks Cards. (Gingham, Cupcake and Bunting)
Image from Lindsay Mason.
Sentiment printed out on computer
Prima Flowers and pearls from stash.

Card number 2 is for my Granny's Christmas from Mum and Dad. I downloaded it from Crafts U Print. I decoupaged the Mum and popped stickles glue on the Poinsettia and the Mum.
Its for Rainbow Ladys Challenge - Christmas Animals
Poor birds are all so hungry just now. There is so much snow that they cant get any worms for lunch. I have been feeding them but the big gulls must be hungry too as even with the bread in wee tiny bits they are there feasting too.
Off now to shut the curtains for the night. Think by the looks of things we are in for even more snow soon.

I'd struggle just as much with yellow as I did with green Hazel, but you have done a grand job here. Beautiful christmas birthday card, aren't they so hard to do! Love your second card too. Great the way the letters sit out. Thanks for playing along at LCI this week. Hope you are keeping warm and safe in all that snow.
