Default Which retired SU sets do you have to have??

I am going to be placing an order soon to get some of the retired SU sets, but cannot decide what I cant live without....so many things. What are everyone's favorite sets that they love or use a lot? I know I am getting Pines and the Cheesecloth Background, but what else MUST I have.
Let me know what you all like. Thanks for your help!!!

I purchased French Script BG and Crosshatch BG. Picked up a few wheels, Wash Day, Hollyhock, Farmyard. Other sets were Artifacts and Mon Ami. I wanted Artifacts for masculine cards and bought Mon Ami because I love hearts and thought it would work nicely with Carte Postal.

Have fun deciding!

The only one that I don't have and I have been contemplating on getting is Bareback...but I really don't know if I need it or would use it that often. I just love it though and so maybe I might and maybe I won't! Other than that, nothing else!

I already purchased all my wheels...may get a couple more...but I have dozens and never end up using them...oops. I love the background stamps but I have such a hard time with them. I was working on my baby shower invitations this last week and used Canvas for part of them with Versamark pad, and I have such a hard time making the image perfect when I stamp the paper. What is the problem? Is it just too big? I even turn the stamp upside down and press the paper on it that way and it still doesnt come out like I want it to. Any suggestions? If they worked better I would buy more...or hey..I might even use the several that I have that I never use.

so is there not much that people want because we have already bought everything during the year? hehe...Even though I buy stuff during the year...there always ends up being sets I know I should get...like Pines...I've always liked that one but just havent gotten it yet. I have In Full Bloom, but am wondering if I should get Winged Things?? Does anyone use these 2 together?? Like putting the bugs on the flowers or something?? Also, I have seen examples of Whymsical alphabet and I really like it, but I never use the alpha sets I have...does anyone have ideas for that set?? should I get upper and lower??
Thanks all!!

I make sure to ink up the b/g stamp really well, then turn them ink-side up. I put the c/s face-down on the inked surface, then put a piece of printer paper over THAT, then rub, rub, rub like crazy and make sure you hit all parts of the c/s and stamp. Works great for me.

I have NO luck putting the b/g stamp to the paper.
