Christmas Cards from a 6 x 6 pad

I decided to try the 6 x 6 technique posted on Operation Write Home.  for the 1st  14 cards I used OWH sketches - and still had A LOT of the 6 x 6 paper left!  AND scraps!  So I started making my own "creations".  My final count is 30 cards!  My 30th card is one of scrap strips!  I had to clean up my craft room - the disorder really bothered me!  So I had to conquer my fear of unmatched patterns next to each other!  I should mention 2 things - 1) I noticed a giant smear on one card that I will go back and fix - but there are 3 in the picture; and 2) and I may have mixed up sketch 56 and sketch 115!  In conclusion - - -  using sketches makes the card making experience more enjoyable for me and I can't stand a huge mess in my crafting space - which is why I often make 1 card at a time.
