I was wondering how that is going with the professional designers. It is not attractive for us novices, at least for me. I am still using CS 3.
Your CS3 will continue to work. If you ever want to upgrade you'll need to either join the CC or get a CS 6 hard copy which will be the last version available sans CC.

You also have the option to go GIMP which does more than what CS3 does, for free.

I am on CS4, decided not go to CC and pay each month for a lot of apps I'll never use. I just bought a brand new disk copy of CS6 Design Standard on ebay for $830. That'll last me for several years to come. I wanted the disk, not the full license CS6 download from Adobe that is mostly available now for much more money.
