Scraplings!

Daring Card Makers have a fab challenge on at the mo. and it's called 'scraplings' where they ask us to make a card/tag etc with the scraps of card we cut of when making another project. If I use an A4 sheet of card to make a square card I always end up with a strip which I cut off and occassionally made bookmarks with but otherwise they just get shoved on the pile, to be used for layering or used with punches!
Well I just loved making this little card so much that I made another!!
this one I am entering for the Cupcake Crafts challenge which is 'digital images' and I've once again used the Pollycraft freebie from the other week! The image would've fitted on the card the other way up, but I kind of like the effect of it being higher than the base! (The card is red, the white is just the background).Hollie (4 nearly 5) saw me making these and decided that she would like to make some to, she made one for Lillie, one for daddy and one for her half sister who was with us for the weekend. I didn't get one :0( lol!! (I'm not sure about the mouths that were drawn ont the images, but she didn't do them Lillie did, would've looked better pink or red me thinks!).

Joanne,
Love your cards. Have been making these for years to use with gifts and as thank you notes in the items that I sell, but never heard them called scraplings until lately. What a great name for them.
