Python Card Library

Some time ago, I took part in an online Python programming course.  This course kept me entertained, and also taught me a little something about the language!  I can not stress how fun, challenging and enlightening this course, and the instructor were!  The link is here, and the course is free!  During this course, I learned enough about Python to start experimenting.  I developed a basic card library.  This library allows you to create 52 card decks, name them via variables, shuffle named decks, draw cards, display cards, and move cards to a stack.  It probably can be done MUCH better, but for a beginner like me, it was AMAZING!

For those of you who do not have Python installed locally, there are plenty of resources out there to help you through the process.  For the class, and learning though, you do not need to install anything.  You can experiment, and program right from the web HERE.  You can even save what you make, and get a URL that will point to your code.  Copy that URL, and you can access your code at any time.

You can view and test this code out, and let me know your thoughts.
