Crafting on a cloudy afternoon

It's been cloudy all day here. I slept late (I read til about 3AM!), then played on the computer checking out blogs and websites and my groups, talking on the phone, talking to my neighbor, just taking it easy.
When it became clear (sorry, no pun intended) that the sun was NOT going to come out, I decided to approach the problem of Kim's blog challenge. Kim is one of the members of the Yahoo group for those of us who LOVE Belinda Landtroop's Clear Artistic Stamps.

The problem is that the central motif in the card sketch challenge was an oval and I did not bring my Cuttlebug and my nesties down here.
Hmmmm.....can I duplicate the nesties on the Silhouette?

The answer is YES!!!!
So, here are the results of some time spent figuring it all out, downloading some new scalloped shapes from Quickutz, and cutting enough ovals in various colors to do 10 cards for Kim's challenge (which I won't do, but I COULD!)
Since my main summer papercrafting goals were learning rather than producing, I think I am on the right track.
Now, tonight, unless a book, my cross-stitch or the TV capture my attention more, I can work on Kim's challenge.
And, tomorrow, I can make nested squares, or circles, or rectangles.....
I *DO* love my techno-toys!!!!
