Not bad, Not bad at all!
One of the things I do like about this very much is the sketch shading and consistency of style you kept throughout making this, however some minor details can change everything, and some of those I have noticed.

The animation is somewhat glitchy at times and could flow a bit better, the jump at the end is related to this as is the run cycle in which it appears she freezes, and easy way to avoid this is to run through the animation in preview mode and then pick some of the frames which are more or less longer than the rest.

I really do like your style though, please do keep it up :) I'll be expecting more great animations from you!
What do you think?

This seems to be an overall very energetic animation. The eyes seem to pop open so suddenly however it strikes me as a bit odd to see them pop open so quickly near the end there. The hair movement is gorgeous and flows nicely except from one frame where her hair length seems to lose it's constancy for about one frame; Also her bangs appear to transition from a strange edged cut to a shaggy/spiky cute in several frames. Likewise during the jump her feet seem to just shrink in perspective a bit too much mid jump. The only thing I could think of there would be to add a few blur frames to make the transition of perspective a bit smoother. Mid jump her bow's size consistency seems to get larger than it's usual proportions. The skirt of the dress and the arm movements are very well done so are the first few steps of the character. The skate board seems to also disappear for a fraction of a moment. Overall I'd say this is still a good animation. Of coarse it could be refined but your key frames definitely tell the story well. I'm looking forward to seeing more animations done by you and hope to encourage you to keep up the good work!

Really pretty. Good animation, great design. The distance between the frames is really invisible, I like it.
Uh, azdrawing 2 is better than flash? You like it?

I play too much League XD

For her first two steps I hear "Crit, Crit" then when she lands on the skateboard, I screamed, "BOOM!"

Fantastic animation by the way :D Very dynamic movements and the character is uber cute as well.
