I coined the acronym NBUS in 2013 and ran several challenges until 2017. The term caught on and is still being used in Blogland, so I thought this would be a good time to resurrect my NBUS challenge. I set up this dedicated NBUS website for crafty artists to share their works of art containing any brand-new virginal Never-Before-Used-Schtuff! We bought it ~ now let's use it to share and inspire others!

and actually using them are two separate hobbies." (Unk)

NBUS Challenge #29


It's great to see you and I hope you're doing well. Thank you for another month of rousing participation in the NBUS Challenge. We had an outstanding 124 entries in the gallery! WOW!!! Thank you for all the amazing inspiration!

This is a wonderful place to find design ideas as we all share with each other how well we are doing using our Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. I find myself returning again and again to the galleries to find card design ideas when I am running low on mojo, so thank you all for that!

From all the incredible entries, I have randomly chosen #81, Bunny:
What a great card design for summer! Congratulations Bunny and thank you for sharing your wonderful creations using NBUS! 

The basic idea of this challenge is evident in the name. Whether it's something you have just purchased or something collecting dust in the back of a drawer, you are proud when you use something never-before-used in your creation and here is where you link up to share those NBUS works of art! (And as you can imagine, I have a huge mountain of NBUS, so I will also proudly share whenever I excavate and use something.)

There are no limitations on what you can create, but there are a few RULES which you can find on the tab above. If this is your first visit, please take a minute to read them. You can also click here for answers to any questions you might have. 

You may use this badge for your blog post if you like, but it is not mandatory. 
I can't wait to see what you share with us! 
The challenge closes August 31, 2021, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!
Thank you!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Thanks, Darnell. Feel free to share the olive with the mice. They are very generous. Perhaps Hammy might like the pimento or that tiny little bit of liquid left in the glass. [Bunny]
