The Greeting Farm Warm Wishes Colouring Background

I wanted to try to create a scene showing the couple doing their christmas shopping pottering around town. We normally go to the Christmas Market and then potter around York which is our local city but that is of course reserved for next year. 

I imagine this couple pottering around London.

I have had to upload the video in 3 parts due to its size. I have tried to show the colouring in detail and really can not condense it anymore. I just can not figure out how to upload such a huge file from my phone! You can find the 3 videos on my  YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner
