I have just read an article that referred to loteria cards and, what I could see, they looked great as a source for mixed media projects of every kind.  Been looking for a listing of images, cost, and where to purchase them, and your shrine came up!  Would you be able to tell me where to find them?  Oh yes, really liked your use of them, the rosary, and other religious images.  In fact, I liked it so much, I am already writing and sketching ideas for my own shrine, one to my favorite saint, St Jude, who is the patron saint of impossible situations.

Hopefully he is helping me right now, in hopes of receiving a response and getting to the cards so I might follow your inspiration and add one or more to St Jude's shrine.  I fear without his help, I could be e-mailing the Queen of England!  I know little about communication through the computer AND I have never e-mailed a stranger, nor expected a response from one!

If you are reading this, thanks for your time.  Again I will ask St Jude to help me find and be able to read a response if you should send one.  Sincerely, mizmona
