Get this book.......
"The Photoshop book for digital photographers" by Scott Kelby. I bought the PS7 version a while back but I think there may be a CS version out as well.
It cost about 50 bucks from the Computer Book Shop at Funan.
The book shows step by step on how to correct, edit, sharpen, retouch etc photographs. Very effective way of learning.
You can jump in anywhere in the book just to do some manipulation (e.g. using the unsharp mask to sharpen your photos). It is not a "built on what you learn" type of book where you probably run out of steam....
Best 50 bucks for Photoshop tips to me.

Then use Macromedia Freehand or Adobe illustrator to manipulate. Actually if you're not thinking of going so pro, normal card programs can just come up with nice cards.
But again, everything can still be done in PS, just that dedicated programs are much easier and have better tools for the job.
