If I have to pick one I couldn't part with it would be Etruscan. It is such a versatile set. And a very elegant image.
But it is soooo hard to pick one!!!!

Mine are a toss-up between Lovely Leaves and Roses in Winter. Love those sets!

Oops! Didn't see the part about which word stamps are my favorite. Wonderful Words and Simple Sayings II are the ones I love to use the most. My favorite would have to be Wonderful Words. So beautiful!

Well.... hmmm. hard decision.

I like lots of them, but the single most used set in my collection has to be Lovely as a Tree.

Its not my "favorite" per say, but its my stand by, "for all occasions" versitile favorite.

My favorite is still DD HYDRANGEA. When my demo gave me my hostess packet a few years ago, she had stamped the hydrangea on the envelope. I loved it from the first time I saw it. It's the best 2-step stamp set ever!

My ALL-TIME favorite is Rose Rhapsody without question! I'm now using Roses in Winter which I also love, but Rose Rhapsody remains the best!

My 2nd all-time fave, also retired, is Funky Favorites. Am I dating myself?

All Natural is my current fave for images, being one of the most versatile as far as being able to make both masculine and feminine cards for so many different occasions.

I don't have a whole lot of word sets yet and have been relying mainly on the word stamps that are part of other image sets, but AYC I and II are on my Christmas wish list and I plan to order Wonderful Words at my workshop in a few weeks. I love how the words have been used in conjunction with images to make things like kite strings!

Of the word stamps that I do have, Simple Sayings II is probably the best!

Lovely as a Tree, by far! If every set was as versatile as this one, I'd be one happy gal!

As for words, how can you choose between the AYC sets??? Also Wonderful Words? (Wouldn't it be great to have more word set in the same style as Wonderful Words?)

Sketches is my favorite set. It's not my most used, but I think the original Sketches, and the other similar sets are just beautiful. They evoke wonderful memories of the ocean, and times on the beach. (or as we say in South Jersey, the Shore)

Wonderful words goes well with the Sketches, and many other sets.
Sometimes you want to fill a space quickly. Wonderful words is great for that.

K, so this is dating me also! I have been a demonstrator for 7 years. Flashy Florals is one of my all time favorites. Right now, I think it is In Full Bloom.
I kinda liked it when the catalog came out. Because of you fine ladies I had to buy it and now I love it! Thanks!

Funky Favorites- hands down. I love the Mary Englebriet (spelling?) look that it has. The many different stamps makes it very versatile. I guess this is dating me also.

Button and Bow Bear sets were also cute and popular.

The most versatile set that I used the most was Little Shapes, that got used with lots of things.

My favorite sayings set of all time is Everyday Expressions. I miss that one!

Today my most used sets are Lovely as a Tree and All Year Cheer 1.

This is a old set but I still use "Party Animals". I love it for kids cards....plus the words and the party hat, balloon, present, and cake can be used for so many things. I still love this one. I love Wonderful words too, and another top favorite is Petal Prints...there is so much you can do with it.

Lovely As A Tree--other favorites come and go but the classy, strong images in LAAT are forever beautiful.

I love Wonderful Words and would love a Words of Faith set, too. Faith, hope, charity and believe would be an awsome set!

My favorite set ever is - Thanks Snow Much (is that what it was called?). I was so sad when it was retired. I love it and wish I could demo it!!

My favorite word set was this Dot Greeting mixed set - don't remember the name of that either. I always loved the Dot word sets.

Default All time fave is Dreams and Dragons

I have always loved all fantasy type things and although Dreams and Dragons isnt very practical I still love the images.

I had been checking them out on eBay but was too cheap to pay $100 that the sets were going for. When I heard SU was bringing back a few sets out of retirement I crossed my fingers that this would be one of them and was ecstatic when it was the very first one brought back.

As far as word sets go, I usually dont care much for them but I absolutely LOVE alot of the sets that are in the current catty. SS 1 and 2 and Wonderful Words are the best.

Also worth mentioning are the Alphadots because they fit perfectly inside the small round punch and give me an easy 'wow' when demo'd with the dimensionals.

Well noone has mentioned this one. Though I know that many disliked the set I am about to mention.

My favorite and the first set I every bought was Tree Sampler. I still love this set and I still use it. I can do any occasion any time of the year with it.
