WebSite A
        Home
          
        
        Global
            Blog
                Blog Promo Card

    WebSite B
        Home
        
        Global
            Blog
                Blog Promo Card

My requiremet is to show items dynamically based on sites based on this template (Blog Promo Card). So in drop tree field on item level i should show items creted from block promo card template.

You need to use a dynamic source query like this, that will match the same content tree structure for each site.

query:./ancestor-or-self::*[@@templateid='SITE TEMPLATE ID']//*[@@templateid='GLOBAL ITEM TEMPLATE ID']//*[@@templateid='BLOG TEMPLATE ID']

Also if you want to fix the path of your Content tree structure after a certain point then the query will be something like this. (In case you are using Folder to hold item)

query:./ancestor-or-self::*[@@templateid='SITE TEMPLATE ID']/Global/Blog/Blog Promo Card

You have to write your dynamic source query for drop tree field like this, it will works for multisite solution and shows item based on your current site.

query:./ancestor::*[@@templateid='{23DA3211-A3A4-4E46-8ABD-FDE132236DCB}' or @@templateid='{23DA3211-A3A4-4E46-8ABD-FDE132236DCB}']]//*[@@name='Globals']//*[@@name='Blog']//*[@@name='Blog Promo Card']/*
