Fall Cards, Happy Dancing and Smiling BIG TIME!

This is the amazing card my pen pal sent me awhile back:

That was soooo nice of her to send me the directions inside the card! I did my happy dance right there when I saw that card =) I wanted to make her a card for Canadian Thanksgiving (October 13th) using her idea and here is the result:

My first version of the inside...but it needed something...
so here's the final version:

I finally got to meet Leslie-Ann and her wonderful husband last year. She surprised me with several gifts including her homemade chocolate chip cookies! One of those gifts was the stamp set I used on this card called Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves by Just Rite Stamps:

I LOVE this versatile set and have used it for many cards since receiving it. Thank you so much, LA!...and another thank you goes to Leslie-Ann for this wonderful card she sent me that made me smile BIG TIME:

The PERFECT masculine card for sure thanks to her clever creativity! I also received this card recently from one of my favorite talented card makers, Mel. This one really made me smile BIG TIME when I read the inside saying:

...oh!...if I could only stick to the first sentence in that sentiment!..and here are a few Fall-themed cards that caught my eye on Pinterest recently:
