Sweet vintage Christmas card: Norcross "Gingham Girls"

I have tried without success to learn more about these adorable vintage Christmas card designs.  These Norcross cards are from the 1940s, I do know that much.  My mother, as a college girl and then as a young teacher, exchanged many sweet little Christmas cards with her friends and students.  The card above is so sweet, depicting a Gingham Girl reading a Christmas card at her mailbox.
This is the inside of the card at top.
The back of the Gingham Girl cards looked like this.
Here is another Gingham Girl.  This one is wearing a sweet fringed muffler and pulling a sled laden with gifts, a little tree, and jingle bells!
This is the inside of the above card.

Lastly here is a third Gingham Girl.  This one is wearing an adorable white fur jacket.  The December wind has taken her hat away!  The inside of the card, below, shows that she did catch her hat, but had to let go of her holly wreath in the process.

Aren't these the cutest little vintage cards?  These three charmers have found their way into my Etsy shop!
