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 #48

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 (NBUS)!

It's great to see you and I hope you're doing well! Thank you for playing in the February NBUS Challenge with all your beautiful goodies! You came in droves again and I appreciate it. (Remember, if you can't find a drove, you can always call me for a ride!) From all the incredible entries, I have chosen to showcase #132, Di Wray!
I thought this smashing card was perfect for this time of year when the up and down weather gives us no other choice but to drink now and then! Might as well make it a fancy colorful one ~ or three! Congratulations, Di, 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! This is the place for you to share those NBUS works of art! 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 March 31, 2023, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!
Thank you!

There never seems to be a shortage of NBUS items and like most others I have a box full of them, so thank you for giving us the opportunity to use them and get great inspiration from all the other NBUS makes Darnell. Lovely to see Di's beautiful card showcased this time too. x

Di said...

What kind comments from such lovely and very kind crafters about my Cocktails card! I came back to play again as those pesky NBUS items aren't going down much at all!

Hugs, Di xx
