During a fun community craft night at the Ballentine-Spence House, I was sitting with my friend Christina Campbell going through magazines looking for images and words for our vision boards.

Christina casually tore out and handed me a magazine page showcasing an entrepreneur who was building her dream greeting card business. She was an amazing artist who painted and created each unique piece that would later be printed and used on her cards.

It was at that moment that I realized that my passion for note cards and my daughters gift for drawing and painting could together create and exciting new business for us to do together!

Christina thought it was a brilliant idea and suggested we be called “D & M Cards” with D representing Daughter and M representing Mother!

I LOVED the idea!! I presented the idea to my daughter and was in complete agreement. Within 24 hours we had purchased the domain name, created the facebook page, twitter account, instagram account, and ordered business cards!

And our new adventure has begun! Our cards can be found on our etsy shop and at David Anthony’s in Fuquay-Varina at 542 N. Main Street.
