Cookie Bugg & Autumn Bugg

It's another Tuesday and we have a great challenge at Tiddly Inks to get your week started! The challenge for you is to create something with the theme "Sugar and Spice with a Twist!" We want you to make a sarcastic or humorous. ;D

I took this as the perfect opportunity to use a new sentiment I found from Inkadinkado - this one says "It's fun to grow up because TV and cookies stop being bad for you." I created a scene to go with it using Cookie Bugg for the grown up and Autumn Bugg for the little kid (the rebellious disgruntled kid, of course). Then I colored in some expressions on their faces to match.

I'd have to say I totally cracked up laughing when I saw this sentiment at the store because it was soo true and related well to recent experience. Nothing more "telling" than to have your own kids catch you in the act of grabbing an extra snack. LOL

I pulled the card together with a few embellishments: pink gingham ribbon, black gems and a couple black sequin flower centers. The background utilizes a bunch of scrap papers I had in efforts to use up some scraps.

Did you know? A Zeppelin bend (also Rosendahl bend) is a general purpose bend knot. It is a secure, easily tied, and jam-resistant way to connect two ropes. Though its simplicity and security may be matched by other bends, it is unique in the ease with which it is untied, even after heavy loading. Even though it is not very well-known, it is praised by some sources as a nearly ideal bend knot. A bend knot is a knot used to join two lengths of rope.
