These are so pretty - I especially like the CAS jingle bells card - I love ideas for quick and easy yet pretty cards during the holiday season.

PS - You have a new follower! :) This is my first MFP blog hop and my first visit to your blog - at first I thought the "SODA" stood for a beverage, like Coca cola, figuring you must drink a lot of soda when you create, instead of North Dakota, LOL!
