The two things that come to mind is that maybe it's rolled too thin or maybe it's too dry. I find that I have a tendency to roll my fondant too thin and then it cracks. If your fondant seems too dry try kneading in some Crisco and give it another try.

Thanks I forgot about the shortening because I added more frosting because it turned crusty.
