Hey, Neighbor!

I made a quick card for a neighbor this week. Seems like our nice, quiet street is about to grow by leaps and bounds! In the last 3 months, there have been six lots on our street alone where the builder has broken ground. The most recent is the lot directly across the street from me.  My neighbor next door to the new build is about to lose her perfect view of the mountains to the West, and the deer will have to go further down the street to cross from the golf course into our little community park area. (Of course, that may mean we lose fewer plants and flowers to them! I also suspect they drink from my courtyard fountain at night.) I will have to look OVER the new roof to see the foothills, but thankfully, it is only a single story. From our master bath, I still have a great view.

It seemed, just like this card, that someone literally DROPPED a house in the empty lot overnight!  I think it took about 2 months from frame, to walls, to stucco, to finish!
Kinda scary...
I know my neighbor will see the humor in it; besides, all you can do is laugh. The dozen or so of us couldn't have the street all to ourselves forever.
The pattern paper from DCWV, Songbird pack made this card so easy-peasy!
I simply fussy-cut the little houses and popped some up.
Dangling the new house with twine was so much fun! 
And the little birdhouses DO somewhat resemble the houses in our neighborhood! LOL!

This card will be entered into the challenge at :
