The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!

As usual, so much to post, so little time to do it.
But had to post this one.
My cousin, snafu, and his better half, sent us such a beautiful Christmas card this year. And you know the old saying, "Imitation is the best form of flattery."
Well, this is just the kind of scene I love to draw, but have not yet been able to draw one from my imagination, so decided to do my own sketch of this. It was SUCH a delight to draw!
Here is my version:
I call this English Village. I intentionally left the decorations off the Christmas trees.
and here is the original:
It is a charity card, by the Sue Ryder Care charity - copyrighted!
My sister tells me I have a very light hand, and I can see she is right. So I will need to go over my copy with  a VERY fine pen...I am terrified of ruining wasn't done in a day! But at least I have it scanned now.
Interestingly, my other cousin, A, also sent a beautiful Christmas card of a typical English scene.
I am going to work on that one next!
Thanks Cuz's!!
