Hiking in Ireland

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and this is my Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers--Kelly, Jeanette and me--are back with another challenge for March-our 35th month!  That means we are coming to the end our third year--YAY! 

I provided the challenge for March: We post on the 18th of March,  the day after St. Patrick’s Day.  You have been tasked to make a card or project using green someplace..   You also need to do some research and showcase something Irish, other than a shamrock.  It can be another symbol, a food, area of Ireland,  a celebration or tradition,  etc.  Anything to do with Ireland and the Irish people.

Ready? Set? Go!

I was not sure when I provided this challenge what my plan would be.  As I got closer to today, I decided to highlight an upcoming trip to Ireland!  Or, I am hoping it still is happening.....................  A few months ago we decided to do a walking trip in Ireland on the Dingle Peninsula.  Rebecca's niece did this same walk a few years ago and we booked it for September.  We are planning to meet my cousin and her hubby in Dublin a few days before the hike and then travel to Camp to start the 8 day walk. We will walk between 4-6 miles a day and stay each night in a B&B along the way--Camp is the name of the town, not what we are doing........ We will have about another week to explore Ireland.  I am not sure at this time how long my cousins will be with us.  I am so excited to do this trip and it better happen!  A map of the area is below

So, I thought I would make a card that describes out trip.  From the hiking boots, to the sentiment with the Adventure of a Lifetime, I am dreaming of our trip to Ireland.  I think I met the challenge!

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card. Jeanette is up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in April!
