House-A-Fire Creations & GIVEAWAY


Yes, another swap. I try not to join them but when a good topic comes along, I have such trouble resisting. It's kind of like brownies. Now say, if you put cole slaw in front of me or liver and onions, I'd be able to resist. No problemo. But not brownies. Not GOOD swaps either.

This swap hosted at Altered Gypsies Forum boards was to make houses out of the basic postcard shape. Either 3 1/2" x 5" or 4 1/4" x 6". Of course to be difficult, I had to do both. 

I can't decide on a favorite. I want to keep them all!  I won't, but YOU can win one. GIVEAWAY! Tell me your favorite and why. I'm giving away one or two of them this by Wednesday of next week. Feel free to share this giveaway with friends or on your blog. Fun fun fun!

P.S. All the door images are made with Altered Pages collage sheet images.

Hi Kris! I love them all, but the first, the polka dots, just grab me! LOVE!

I'm liking them all--in need of some bright colors after all these bleeha days--but the one with the frog and the purple jewel, that one is somehow more amusing than the others!

The one with the yellow and red feathers together, that one I find very striking.

Oh I too like them all. The colors are so bright and cheery. If I had to choose, I would pick the last one posted that says "underground" and has the pink doily on it, but if I win, I would be happy to receive any of them. Great job with the houses, they are fantastic!

Palma said...

They are all fabulous! The one that catches my eye most is the 5th one. I hope there is no house envy ;)

Good luck, everyone.
What a treat,
Thanks,Kris

Hi Contessa. Got your blog link from Palma over at milliande`s. FAB! I really like your houses, the colours are great. What we all need after a long dark winter. But to choose one......I love feathers, so the bright red and yellow feather house is POW, and theres a small manga figure, which i like. Your last one, the fox, is good! reminds me of my daughter, and the hippie come back, flach back for some of us! Beautiful houses, thanks for sharing. xx Trine. DK.

Hi! Found your blog thru Trisha too. i love the last one with the pink crocheted flower. I LOVE the wolf which reminds me of little red riding hood. :) Very cute!!

Lorraine said...

hello collage contessa..what a cool name. I like them all but suppose my fav is the one with the 30 bingo button on it as your eye is not just drawn to one thing that stands out and the colours and layers are integrated well.

Karen Denson said...

Great houses. All of them are great but I love the 3rd one with the picture of the girl. Looks like about the 50's. I have started collecting tons of images like that and I would love nothing more than to win it.
Your work is so awesome!

Julie Forest said...

Hello! I'm saw one of your beautiful houses on Trisha's blog and had to come by and have a closer look! These are absolutely fabulous! I really love them all but if I had to choose...I'd pick the first one with the polka dot roof b/c that roof is too cute and love the diamonds on the background...or the house with the B31 bingo marker and numbers on the roof b/c I'm drawn to the numbers, the spotted feather and the door art sucks me right in! :) Would LOVE to win one to display in my craft room! Gorgeous!!

Kelly said...

these are gorgeous! I admire your work and would love to own a piece of it! :)

Beckie Holso said...

LOVE these! They're so HAPPY - bright & cheerful... the perfect thing to get me in the mood for Spring =)

craftattack said...

I like them all, they are so vibrant and colourful. But my fave has to be the one of the lady outside playing games ( Number 3)instead of swinging the hoover at home, that's the spirit! Valerie

kamiguen said...

They are all so bright and chirpy but #4 really appeals to me. It looks like its wearing a very jaunty little hat with a feather in it - juts gorgeous!

Rhonda Langley said...

Lovely, bright creations! the last one with the wolf made me smile, "A Harmless Shooting Game"?

muriel said...

Hello from France! I love all things made with a house shape. Il ove your houses, their colours and all the little bits of this and that. My fave is the "entrepreneur" one.
