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!

NBUS Challenge #61

Welcome and Happy April Fool's Day!

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 March NBUS Challenge with all your beautiful goodies! You ladies really outdid yourselves this month, with a total of 188 gallery beauties! WOW! I really appreciate your enthusiasm!

From all the incredible entries, I have chosen to showcase #134 Liz:
Congratulations, Liz, for sharing your wonderful creations using NBUS and for making a card which made me giggle out loud

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 April 30, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!
Thank you!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

That pig on Liz's card is a cutie, and is definitely a 'smiley' card. I can't believe that it is April already and still plenty of NBUS to be used. x
