Default What is your must have set out of the mini???

Hi all, I am just looking through the mini and I am wondering what your most favorite, must have set is from the 2009 spring mini?

I am debating between a few and would love some opinions!!!

I really like the set that goes with the coordinating dies, Matchbox messages. I like the idea of having the curvy frames cut and then stamping inside them and having a perfect border inside the perfectly cut frame. Of course, buying both is a lot of $$, so I am pondering...

I also like Overalls and the coordinating scalloped oval punch.

I like coordination!!

All the flower sets are lovely, but if one more flower grows in my stamp room, I'm in trouble!!

If you are a scrapper Wagon Full of Fun is a great size for scrapbooks. I also like it for coloring and paper piecing.

Golden Oldies was the one I really wanted the most and have used the most up to this point. It's the first time SU! is offering a humorous stamp set in French so I was all over that! I have also created my own sentiments with the help of my computer, so I see this as a versatile set. I am going to love poking fun at my friends and families with this set!

I love and just ordered Scene in a Garden. Those wee boots are too sweet! I just love it but wasn't sure what I could do with it. I thought it would be good for scrapbooking also. I searced the gallery and there were some awesome creations with this set already. That sold me!

I second Scene in a Garden. I got it and Very Versatile. Neither one has very many cards in the gallery (I was surprised about that...but customers are just starting to order, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised) but what is there is lovely.

I like most of them, but at the top of my list is "and many mower" and "golden oldies". So many great toys and not enough money or time! LOL

I'm not sure if it was the mini or the "occasions" but I have to have the frog one. One of the sentiments cracked me up.

I like Soft Summer... that dogwood stamp, in particular, is very pretty I think and would be great for spring & summer cards.

I'm really wanting Forest Friends. I had (and still have for DD) a game from when I was little called Forest Friends with cute little critters. The stamps really remind me of my game!! And....I'm a sucker for fuzzy & cute!

I bought the oval punch, the golf guy and the flowery one (the one on the first page) I thought that flower one would be great for my water color paints.

Oval All and the coordinating punch was my first pick. I've seen some gorgeous cards made with the dogwood image (Silke Ledlow aka sparklegirl and Chat aka nitestamper both made great cards with it). This mini was filled with great sets this time.

I liked a lot of them. I don't really need any more flowers either, but I just had to have the dogwood. I love them! I also liked Oval All and the coordinating punch. I'm getting ready to order the matchbox die.
I liked the Golden Oldies just for something totally different than anything I have. I decided I could resist Wagon Full of Fun, but I'm starting to rethink that. Same goes for the clock one. I have nothing along those lines.

I only bought two sets and I can't choose a favorite between them:
Versatile Verses
Sense of Time
I will be getting Lazy Days wheel and maybe Walk in the Park DSP before the catty is done. New stuff is the best stuff!
