Im writing a blackjack program to train one to count cards using the Hi-Lo System.

I found the engine online ( it was open sourced.) Instead of the code here using only numbers and Letters, i want to add only pictures of the cards instead of the numbers and card values. I need help. I recently downloaded pygame to help me import images. but i am having no luck.. Please take a look


import Tkinter
import sys
import tkMessageBox
from random import shuffle
import pygame.image
import pygame.display

class cardTrainer:

    def __init__(self, master):

        #Define the deck of cards by list of representative strings
        self.deck = ['A', '2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9','10','J','K']            
        #Holds the current count
        self.current_count = 0

        #Holds the position in the deck of cards we got to
        self.current_card_position = 0

        #Boolean to hold weather the count loop is running
        self.count_running = False

        #Shuffle the cards

        #Define the Tkinter frame to hold the main interface
        frame = Tkinter.Frame(master)
        frame.pack(fill=Tkinter.X, expand=.5)

        #Define the interface

        self.label = Tkinter.Label(frame, text='BlackJack Card Counter')

        self.slider = Tkinter.Scale(frame, from_=100, to=2000, orient=Tkinter.HORIZONTAL,
                                    showvalue=0, command=self.new_timerspeed)
        self.slider.pack(fill=Tkinter.X, expand=1)
