I don’t think card making is on the wain, but I do think peoples lives have gotten busier.  I have been making cards for about 40 years. I don’t make as many now as I used to do, but I still enjoy it. I still like learning new techniques,  it’s always nice to try something new.

Our little family here has altered over the years. I'm pleased to say that we still have a good many that, even though their card making isn't as profuse, have still stayed with the forum.
Over on Facebook and other internet sites, it is quite obvious that card making is still loved by many.  It has changed due to postage costs etc, but still people love to make beautiful personal cards.
Don't judge card making from what you see here Irene, as we are such a tiny community, but such a lovely one! Smiley

I think Lynn is right, Irene, people are still making cards, but life and social media has changed over the years.  I make a lot less cards than I did as we are away so much of the year, but I do pop in here most days even if I don't post.  There are quite a few people who look most days, but rarely post.  We are a small, but very friendly forum and long may we last.

I too pop in most days, it's part of the job  Kiss
I think we are all making cards as ever we did. I know I don't post as many as I used to simply because I don't feel that a lot of them are much different from those I have already shown. If there's a new idea, technique, CD or download to showcase then I'll post.
And as everyone has said, we are all getting busier. This week I have been making, but sewing not papercrafting. I have tried patchwork and may scan it to print out the embroidery to put onto cards. I have made a blouse, upcycled from a really pretty charity shop duvet cover, recycled for £4 with yards left  Grin Best of all I have made a couple of smocks/bibs for my granddaughter. Her 'flower girl dress' arrived and so decided that some protection will be needed as 2 year olds (early) aren't well known for keeping clean at meal times. I'm home alone so just spread all my sewing about and had fun. I'll post them once I've ironed  Shocked them. Freehand appliqué may be scanned for cards too.
Then there are my in-laws to visit and help and a weeks washing from OH, so no cards at the weekend.
That said, come on ladies, if you haven't entered the Dec/Jan Inspirationals there are only a couple of cardmaking days left!

Judging by the amount of people going to the card making shows I go to, card making is defiantly not "on the way out"!!

It's lovely to have everyone pop in, whether we are active on the cardmaking front or not. The forum is called' crafters...' and many are doing other crafts if not the cards. And best of all it's happy, kind place to share friendship whatever we are doing!  Kiss

I love this forum, it has really helped me with my card making. I pop in most days and post if I've anything to share. I moved home last Easter and no longer have my craft room so I'm not playing or making as many cards as I used to. However I can't resist buying more goodies. I go to craft shows with friends who live close to me but who I met through this forum, but there doesn't seem to be as many shows this year in our neck of the woods, wonder if it's because so many buy on line.
