  6. Becca, I just love those little trucks hauling the freshly cut Christmas tree home! My husband and I did this for our family for 30 years, but finally switched to an artificial tree... I still miss going out Christmas tree hunting!! Thank you so much for sharing your card and creativity with us at Double Trouble for our "Christmas in July" challenge!!! -Donna

  7. I'm loving the cute look of a red truck with a tree in the back for Christmas cards! Thanks for sharing your Christmas in July card with us at Double Trouble! :)

  8. Great mix of patterned papers, Becca! Your card is reminiscent of the 1950s and so nostalgic. Love it! Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble Challenge #142. -- Melanie R.
