Scraplings

Hi Riley Fans,
Before we get into the details of this week's challenge we need to announce the winner from last week's challenge. Thanks to everyone who entered, we enjoyed seeing your creations.

The lucky winner this week is  Barb Housner  . Congratulations! Please send an email with your mailing address to sichallenges at hotmail dot com so you can receive your prize.

So now let's get onto this week's challenge ..... Our challenge this week is hosted by me (Frances Byrne) and this week we are creating Scraplings for the challenge

So what are scraplings???? Scraplings are normally 1.25" x 4.25" because they are often made from the off cuts you get when you make a square card (4.25" square) from a piece of card that is 4.25" x 5.5". However if you are like me your scraplings may be a little wider depending on what you are working on at the time. Now for me 1.25" is way too narrow and I normally have wider card then that left over so you can makes yours wider .... BUT for this challenge they cannot be any wider then 2.5 inches that is for the base of the scrapling ... you can have wider pieces hanging off your scrapling if you like, but that is up to you.

For my scrapling I used Riley and the Beanstalk, I also added the Plant a seed of kindness... sentiment.
